I HAVE A VERY NICE COND. MODEL 1899 .250-3000 CALIBER. TAKEDOWN MODEL WITH CHECKERED STOCK. SERIAL #206XXX DATES THIS RIFLE TO 1918-1919. THIS GUN IS VERY CLEAN, NO CRACKS OR SPLIT IN THE ORIGINAL FINISH WOOD. ACTION IS TIGHT AND SOLID AND LOCKS UP LIKE A NEW GUN, I WOULD NOT HESITATE FOR A MOMENT TO USE THIS AS AN EVERYDAY SHOOTER NO PROBLEM. HAS VERY NICE BORE RIFLING. THE DATE OF MANUFACTURE, IT BEING A CHECKERED STOCK, TAKEDOWN MODEL AND THE CALIBER MAKES THIS GUN A PRETTY RARE COLLECTIBLE. PATENT DATES ON BARREL START WITH JULY 25 1893 AND MOST RECENT IS JUNE 1, 1909. THE TOP OF THE RECEIVER HAS BEEN DRILLED AND TAPPED FOR SCOPE MOUNT HOWEVER HAS NO MARKS ON THE RECEIVER SO I DO NOT THINK IT EVER HAD A MOUNT OR SCOPE ON IT. WILL NOT SHIP SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK AND LOWBALLERS WILL BE IGNORED, HAVING SAID THAT I WILL CONSIDER REASONABLE OFFERS. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND I WILL GLADLY TEXT OR EMAIL MORE PICS IF REQUESTED
