Nice rifle, but the ProxiBid premium is a little hard to handle …… Cry

Paul,

The Short rifle on Proxibid appears to have a 20-inch barrel with the long forend stock… is that how you see it?

That is what I came up with not only from appearance but using a ratio of the receiver length to the forearm length. I think I have maybe 5 or 6 20" rifles in my data that have the full size forearm.

Paul,
Heres another one. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=401517285

In your research, how common are the short rifles in 38-55? Is there a large premium on this rifle for caliber? It appears that way to me.

I wrote an answer for you and when I tried to submit it, I was kicked off the forum. This seems to happen on a regular basis. I will send an email.
