W620A IRON FRAME HENRY RIFLE WITH CORRECT BAYONET

$145,000.00

Cal 44 RF just under 200 serial range. All matching numbers guaranteed throughout including the wood tang screw, upper tang screw and buttplate screws. All other parts match correctly. Original sights. Very nice bore. Original perch belly stock is in fine condition with a few mars and dings but most varnish is still in tact. Correct Henry style early rounded buttplate. Overall metal is plum/brown patina with traces of blue in protected areas. Sharp corners. Excellent functioning action. Good bbl markings. Correct sling swivels mounted on the bottom of stock and right hand side of bbl. Interesting and unique gun. On page 186 of Les Quick’s Henry Rifle book there is a picture of a bayonet and mounting lug and is very similar to this gun. Guaranteed correct to be on the gun. There were two different kinds. The long one is pictured and this is the shorter one. It takes the same bayonet just a slightly different configuration where it mounts. We have now added a correct original bayonet with the “BAHN FREI” marking with the original bayonet scabbard. I have only seen two or three Henry rifles with a bayonet attachment, but none of them with the bayonet. The gun is guaranteed correct. Great condition for an Iron Frame. It is thought that they manufactured less 200 iron frames with less than 90 reported known to have survived. They were manufactured concurrently with the brass frames with the highest known iron frame serial number under 400. This one would land in the upper 10% of that class.   Antique
