…and i like the caliber. Don't like the cold blue 'touch up". Wish I was flush in the gun budget.   

I don’t see 9 to 13k in a Winchester 1886 with extensive cold blue touch up.

…something shrinkage.  My recollection is often when I do see a small gap, it tends to be associated with fancy wood.  Even this rebarreled M1886 that we've been discussing on another thread, has a small gap:

Wow Bert. How did you conclude the forend not being original?  Did you already have this carbine documented in your survey in a different configuration, or??  Would be nice if the Groves would post the entire serial numbers on their guns...

…your Model 1894 has an octagon barrel, it is not a "carbine", instead, it is a "Rifle".  Additionally, a 26-inch barrel was standard for the Model 1894 Rifles.  A 17-inch barrel is highly indicative of a

You are correct that Winchester did not use a ramp style front sight in a Carbine until May of 1932. The factory ramp sight based were silver-soldered to the barrel. If you see bronze braising on your Carbine barrel, it is not

… but it looks like this was a limited "special" production run on the 45-90 ammo from what I can find on the web.

…said

The patent date is 1860 not 1880 but otherwise it has the normal barrel for a carbine of the era. The 73 carbine shared the same barrel features of the 66 carbine. The reverse sight is correct as well.
