Thanks very much for that info. Actually, my buddy up here in Canada (Karl) told me you'd be a good fellow to chat with. I emailed back the seller and got the following info on the gun, stemming from your questions and other concerns of mine:
Serial# is 196639, the model says 1894 under the tang sight, it is a carbine rear sight graduated for 2-9, there is no saddle ring stud the barrel is exactly 24". The cc is excellent on the loading gate side, the flash from the camera made it look shiny.
Anything you can tell me from this? I have a Blue Book, which seems to date this gun to about 1900. Does this gun "look right" to you considering the above? What would an approx value for this gun be? I don't want to end up paying too much for it!!
