Here's another one I come across in My closet, I think it's pretty oddball20201103_160541.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160602.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160625.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160637.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160728.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160819.jpgImage Enlarger20201103_160830.jpgImage Enlarger  and it's a decent gun with a beautiful bore. I wonder, Bob, how many would there have been built like this one, I gotta think it wouldn't be common.

Henry,

 

I owned that gun for a while back in 2008 and then traded it to my dad sometime after that.  It came out of a gun shop in New Braunfels, Texas.  He sold it I think on gunbroker about 10 or so years ago.  Dont see many carbines lettering with a rifle butt and set trigger, at least I havent in my travels.

I had a carbine back in 1972, that also lettered with rifle butt and set trigger.  Pretty cool.

Not sure when 38 was introduced but I assume this is 44WCF?

Rick,

What made you think this was a 38? The letter does not state a caliber so its 44 since that was standard.

Bob I didn’t know what caliber it was but I just learned from you if caliber isn’t stated it’s a 44. Can you advise when 38 was introduced for future reference.

Thanks
