This is a second model 1866 rifle built in 1868. A very good eye appealing rifle with nice antique butterscotch patina to the receiver. Barrel has original finish which has turned the classic aged blue/grey patina. This gun is equipped with sling swivels. It has the early 1866 ladder sight. Good action. Wood is also in VG condition. Some age shrinkage at the upper tang. A coat of varnish was added years ago. Looks good and the color is right! This is a very attractive 1866 rifle.
