Please click the image for a larger version
J.D.Greene bolt action percussion rifle. First bolt action firearm adopted by the US Army. Metal parts are untouched with significant original flue finish and a few spots of light pitting. Deep, clear marking on receiver tang. Stock may have been lightly cleaned and shows some scattered minor handling marks, a few little chips in the cleaning rod channel, and two more significant gouges in the forearm wood, on the right side, below the rear sight. Overall, a well above average Greene rifle. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
