Price: $1,850.00 | Product Code: Lightning | Availability: In Stock
This is a nice Colt Lightning rifle with a .38-40 caliber, 26-inch, full octagon barrel and magazine. It is finished blue with a case-hardened hammer. It has a checkered walnut forend and straight-grip, uncheckered buttstock ending with a crescent buttplate. It is equipped with a crescent rear sight and a blade front. This rifle is in fine condition overall with blue mixing with plum patina. It has nice wood with crisp checkering on the forend. The bore is bright with scattered pitting and decent lands and grooves. This rifle was manufactured in 1889. The extractor and safety do not seem to function properly. We suspect their springs have eroded due to time.
