I’ve been searching for a decent carbine in 38-55 to add to my collection, and came across this one. At first glance, it looked nice, but something about it is throwing me off. Maybe the wood is too nice….. replacement? Also, that barrel band – it looks new and does not match the rest of the gun patina. What do you guys think?

Also – any leads to a decent 1894 carbine in 38-55 would be appreciated. It’s the last piece of the puzzle for my collection.  🙂

John

That rifle has had some parts swapped, several new screws and barrel band. Possibly the mag tube and wood updated too. Although probably a nice shooter, it’s been fixed up over time. If you are looking for an all-original specimen, I think you can do better for that kind of money.

Gary,

Thanks. I appreciate you taking the time to give your opinion, and to validate what I think I’m looking at. Yeah, I’d rather have an original specimen, and certainly don’t want to spend $3,000 on a carbine that has been “updated”.
