Serial #2. Overall gun is in absolutely extraordinary condition, retaining virtually all of the orig nickel finish; I believe the gun to be unfired. Orig wood is exc+ with just a few light handling mars and all orig varnish remaining. Exc bore, correct sights. Superb cond with correct 32" full round bbl. This is the flrst cartridge rifle made by Colt and was made on contract for the Russian government. Just about none of them have surfaced in the U.S. This is the only one I've encountered an it's in absolutely incredible condition.
