Offered at $1,750
68. Tigre Saddle Ring Carbine (Spanish Copy of a Winchester 1982 SRC), this is the best example I've ever encountered. 90% plus lustrous blue- balance turning blue-plum patina. .44 L. (.44-40 cal.), Excellent bore- bright and shiney, sharp rifling, considerable case colors intact on the hammer and lever, original sights include a flip-up ladder rear, original saddle ring and sling rings. Correct carbine buttplate equiped with a trapdoor for a cleaning rod. Solid walnut with virtually all original varnish. Some nicks and dings and a few scratches on the left side buttstock resemble an 'M'. The typical tiger is present an the left side of the frame. All markings are excellent including the 'Garate Anitua Y Cia Eibar-Espana' on the barrel. Most of these are all beat up. This is an exceptional example. Modern- FFL required.
