Pretty Cool Henry! Refresh an old rusty memory. Without looking it up. How rare are the Muskets? I really like that rear tang sight on the model 85, low wall ! What's the story on that gun? The, Single shot?

The '85 with the tang site  is a hi-wall in 32-40, with 30" oct. bbl., #2 weight, plain trigger, ser# 2736, shipped Aug 1886 The Lyman tang site is not mentioned and was probably added at some time, along with the set trigger. I don't know the numbers of '92 muskets, but I do know they are scarce, especially with any condition. There are probably better ones out there but this last one I got, #710901 is the best one I've personally seen.

Henry, not to be argumentative, but any time that I've seen a breech block, on a model 1885 of that scalloped design, it was one of the signatures of the low wall. Usually, the high wall's breach block was squared off, more! I'm sure Bert can weigh in and straighten me out on this!Smile

Yup; You're absolutely right , that is a lo-wall . I posted a picture of the wrong gun, 25-20 s.s., it's not even supposed to be in the post.  Embarassed
