ALLEN & THURBER .38 CALIBER BENCH RIFLE
Item ID #1775
The barrel is just about 31" long. It has good lands and grooves and should make a great shooter if you are so inclined. The muzzle has a provision for a false muzzle, but it is AWOL. Barrel measures 1" at the muzzle. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. There is nice engraving on the frame and butt plate. Notice the engraved patch box too. Wood to metal fit is perfect. Wood is nicely figured. There is some damage at the lower tang on the right side. Looks like the ramrod is original to the rifle. Forend looks to be cast nickel. Sights are interesting. There is a windage adjustment reference at the muzzle. Neat piece. It will make a great addition to your collection.
