Known for its speed, the Colt Model 1875 rifle could beat any Winchester. Colt founder Samuel Colt was known to brag, "Nothing is faster than Lightning." The Lightning Rifle by Uberti is an exact replica of the original Colt Lightning, but will safely stand up to modern ammunition because it's made with modern steel and today's manufacturing techniques. The short, hand-conforming fore-end of the Uberti Lightning Rifle features cut checkering for a positive gripping surface during speed cycling. The full-length, tubular magazine reaches to the muzzle of the octagonal barrel and a front blade sight is dovetailed into the top of the muzzle. This rifle features an adjustable rear sight and a hammer transfer bar safety and includes the original factory box with paperwork. There is a slight discoloration in the blueing on the rifle's receiver. Over all, its wood and bore are in excellent condition and its metal is in very good condition.
