evil dogooder Posted July 29, 2021 Share Posted July 29, 2021 Picked this up as a project a few weeks ago. Some of the internals were missing as well as the mag spring and follower. Somebody had re-barreled with a heavy round barrel and reblue it. Born in 1882 as a 44-40. Wood was nice but a little different. It has a squared off shotgun butt on it. I hadn't seen one like it before. Normally I just see the crescent. The wrist is wider as well. If it was replaced, it was done a long time ago. The stock has shrunk evenly around the plate. It's been drilled and tapped for a long range sight. The problem is now that it's functioning, do I keep it or sell it lol. More than likely sell it, but it's nice to have a piece of history... I wish I knew what it's story was Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
