This rifle is in excellent + condition retaining much of it’s original blue finish, as you can see from the pictures. The trapdoor has most of it’s original dark case colors still present. The stock is also in super shape with a crisp SWP 1886 on the side flat and proper P on the bottom. The bore is still very shiny and may be unfired. It appears to me that the sling is also original to the rifle. This is a real collector quality rifle that would be hard to improve on.
