Straight grain walnut stocks are in good condition and appear to have an added coat of finish with a few blemishes on the left side of the buttstock. Hard rubber buttplate. Takedown frame. Nice smooth action. These Model 1891 rifles are most often encountered with octagon barrels. This is a very nice example with a round barrel. Made in 1901.
