Colt Burgess Lever Action Rifle

Colt Burgess Lever Action Rifle

Colt Burgess Lever Action in excellent condition.  44 WCF  with 25 1/2" round barrel.  In far better condition than the vast majority of surviving Colt Burgess rifles.  One of only 1219 round barreled rifles out of the 6403 produced.   Lots of original Colt blue on the receiver and a fading brown appearance on the barrel and magazine tube.  Mechanically excellent with strong rifling, mixed with light frosting throughout.  Wood is in excellent overall condition without the crack or missing wood that's so typical on the right side of the Burgess forearm where it's thinned over the loading gate.  There is one gouge in the forearm that can be seen in the pictures.  This one's an excellent shooter, although the unique Burgess extractor isn't functioning correctly.  Keep an eye out for an episode of "The Cinnabar" where we'll fix that problem prior to shipping this one out.  Overall, a very nice example of a rare Colt rifle.
