Is the front sight on a ramp or dovetailed directly into the barrel? More often than not, an extra lightweight will have a ramp front sight and a 3 leaf express rear sight. Some photos would help and you can send them to [email protected] if you want to.

Thanks for helping with the survey.

Paul,

Yes I got it and appreciate the help. On the 20″, It looks like the checkering was added outside the factory but has been on it for a long time. Any thoughts?

Just wanted to say its good to see you back on the forum, its been about a year. Welcome back, and I hope all is well back east.

The Cornelius A. Wood Gunbroker rifle was once for sale at Cabelas:

Probably a gift from his father since they were extremely well to do people.

Thanks Henry………..both new to the survey. I assume the 24″ has a 9 3/8″ fore end?

Sorry for the late responses, thought I had entered these earlier. I appreciate all the help.

Here’s another one for the survey.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=535554830

Added to the survey – Thanks deerhunter

Interesting gun w/ at least six special order features, depending on how you count them. A little steep on the price, although how many ’94 shorties do you see with 3/4 mag TD and a lettered Lyman 21? Cool piece.

BTW – the 25-35’s only represent 5.84% of the short rifles I have logged. They are good property indeed.
