Right side of butt stock is inlaid with a pewter disk with a profile image of Buffalo Bill and worded around the perimeter is Colonel William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody 1846-1917. Manufactured in 1968 only.
Included is the original factory box which is in Good Plus condition with a tear across the top and a tear on the front side with one end being loose; and the original colorful outer sleeve with its wonderful graphics which does have moderate shelf wear and light soiling with tape repair at several places. All original paperwork is included, which includes: warranty; certificate; and brochure. The original small brochure with specifications is still attached by a thin cord to the lever.
This is an absolutely remarkable rifle with only some very minor issues. The pewter cap on the forearm has dulled a bit, and the nickel plating on the loading port has dulled some as well. This would be a fine addtion to any collection.
