An obvious cut-off job.  This seller gets an “A” for effort trying to convince you otherwise…a flat-out essay.

I sent him a message via Gunbroker, and explained that (1) it is not an “antique” and that it was indeed manufactured in the year 1899, and (2) that it is a cut down Sporting Rifle that originally had a 26-inch barrel. It will undoubtedly be interesting to see what his response is.

So this post gets me thinking…I’ve had this one for many years (don’t remember from where it came) and I frequently use it as an example for justifiable homicide of folks that would do this to such an otherwise very fine rifle…perhaps I should auction it as “super rare 1892 Trapper takedown in 44WCF”…Hmmmmm?…..Nah, probably not….

Just realized this is the same seller that has that 1873 “short rifle” on GB.  Almost the same story and sales pitch…

It looks more like a recessed crown.
