The barrel is marked “4” and “A” on left side under receiver and hinge-block; also displays am eagle head behind breechblock; barrel bands each marked with standard “U”; buttplate tang marked “US”. Barrel length measured from muzzle to face of breech is 36 5/8”; overall barrel length: 40”. Three-barrel bands and band springs; ribbed and slotted- head type ramrod.

The action and mechanics are tight and smooth; bore is clean, strong, and bright. Walnut stock is clean with no wood loss.
