The Maynard tape primer is complete and working. All markings are sharp and clear with the barrel date light but easier read than in the pics. The orig brown laquer finnish  has given way to a bright barrel with some brown residue patina overall. All metal edges are sharp including the muzzle. The gun is fitted with a long range rear sight which is original and complete. The brass mountings have a nice old mellow patina. Inside the patch box is a orig. spare nipple and a front muzzle sight. I am not sure if the sight is orig. or an old repro and am selling as such. Either way it is attractive inside the box.
