My friend is selling an 1894 Saddle Ring Carbine made 1901. 90% barrel/tube blue. 40% receiver blue. 

Pistol grip stock and rifle butt. Standard carbine sights. Factory letter confirms carbine, pistol grip stock, rifle butt.

Wood is excellent and original.

I have never seen this configuration, and am trying to determine it’s value.

I do not have pictures, but the description is accurate.

Photographs would prove extremely helpful, but, at the very least, we need to know what caliber it is.

From the title of the post, thinking it’s a 32 WS.

Barrel barrel band or end cap? Possible short rifle if it has an end cap.

It’s my understanding that pistol grip carbines are not that common. As to value I am going to say it depends on condition. There was one on GI with checkered wood for sale for around 4500 if I remember correctly. Tried to find a link to the listing but can’t, sorry

Sounds like a scarce original carbine. The letter confirming pistol grip & crescent butt adds value for me & as described 40% on frame 90% bl/mag without photos I’m thinking $3k +.

It is certainly a relatively rare configuration, but not a one-of-a-kind. Thus far, I have surveyed (68) pistol gripped Carbines in the 354000 – 1079689 serial number range, and of that number (4) have a rifle (crescent) butt stock and plate.
