Hello Bert,

I was at my old friends house today.  The one I messaged you about that I got the Model 1885 hi-wall from last week.

He has a very nice model 55 in 30 WCF, metal but plate, bbl sights, #1039646.  I do not know much about the lever guns so I am not sure if it is a take down or not.

Hello Ed,

It is a Take Down as it was manufactured in late January 1929.

Thanks for the information,

Bert

Thanks for the picture Gary!  

I believe he wants to sell it to me, but I am not interested in the lever guns.  I shoot and reload for the single shots!
