OK guys, I know the 1892-1894 carbines had Gumwood but I can’t recall ever seeing a rifle with it. Sure looks like gumwood to me…  I did acquire a second model blued 1890 several years ago that had a factory Gumwood butt stock on it so I guess anything is possible.

Good morning Erin,

The listing refers to the wood as walnut and I would agree with that.  This is a classic English configuration rifle.  They seemed to prefer the shotgun butt, round barrel and Express style sights.  I first saw this listing at Simpsons back in February of 2021.

Michael, I have the exact rifle, I purchased from the owner, and English Gent, that bought it out from England in the 80s. Australia, does not require import marks tk god.

I would be cautious concerning this rifle.  The front sight looks too close to the end of of the barrel.

Steve,

I have no interest in this rifle what so ever, I was simply amused by the slab sawed wood (all gunstocks should be quarter sawed) in the butt stock that sure appears to me to be gumwood. I would really like to have a first hand look to verify. 

Best,

Erin
