MARLIN BALLARD #4 1/2 MID RANGE 40-70 CALIBER  Guns > Rifles > Ballard Rifle > Antique
Description: Marlin Ballard 1/2 Mid Range #4 40-70 Caliber ... 30" barrel ... LOA ... 45 1/2" ... LOP 14" ... DAC 2 1/4" ... DAH 2 3/8" ... 9lbs 2 oz empty weight

The 30" barrel is part round and part octagon with a bright excellent bore. This fine rifle is beautifully engraved on left side of action "Ballard A1" in gothic letters surrounded by both incise and relief scroll. The right side of the action is engraved "Mid Range" also in gothic letters and surrounded by the same lovely scroll.

The rifle is equipped with its original full loop lever, single trigger, long range Vernier tang mounted peep sight and windgauge globe front sight.

The condition of the rifle is nice with the barrel retaining about 80% original blue blended with an even and very pleasing smooth even brown patina overall. All edges are sharp and barrel is free of pitting. The action shows nice crisp engraving and bears a grayish brown patina over most areas but also shows some light cleaning where the metal is more silvery in appearance.

The rifle is stocked in spectacular circassian walnut with checkered pistolgrip and nice horn forend tip. The condition of the stocks are excellent with 95% original finish remaining, just light handling marks and strong checkering. The original checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate is in place and rates excellent with no chips. The hammer and lever still show strong remnants of original color case-hardening blending with a pleasing smooth brown patina.

A very nice example of these superb American target rifles.
