This gun was manufactured in 1928, judging from the serial number (996xxx). It was originally a saddle ring carbine. However, it now has a '50's .38WCF barrel (perfect bore) on it, later shot gun style stock with plastic Winchester butt plate and a front barrel "flat" band from the middle '40's. The saddle ring staple holes have been filled with screws after the ring was removed, and it is drilled and tapped for a later style receiver sight. The receiver finish is extremely well done, and it might have been redone at the factory, as the later barrel does not have the mail order proof, and the barrel has not been refinished. There is no way to authenticate this, though. I've put in the best pictures I could, so you can judge for yourself. We will consider U.S. gold and silver coins at spot value, and will take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 4% fee.
