Always wanted to add one of these to the collection.
On the way back from dropping my son and family off at the airport, I stopped at a gun shop I haven't visited in over a year.
There on the wall was a modern (Japan), unfired 1886, 45-70, Take-Down....Box, papers. etc....on consignment. The PO had a gunsmith remove the tang safety and install a tang sight. He then put it in the safe and never fired it.
The asking price was fair, but I asked them if they would present the owner an offer. I offered $300 below the asking price and the owner accepted!
This is a picture that I found on the internet as I haven't had time to photograph the actual rifle............and I know how upset we get when we post "New Rifles" without pictures.... :lol:
I'll take pictures tomorrow and change it..........
