That's one too many X's! :-) And, the year would be 1880, a year they made a LOT of carbines - good for "likelhood of authenticity"; bad for any sort of "rarity".

I would think the bore condtition would speak for itself. Firing blanks is no big deal, so long as it was cleaned, but "movie guns" (which, for some strange reason have appeal to some people) are often pretty badly whipped, or otherwise cobbled together.

Given the rather scant facts provided so far, I'm unable to give you a meaningful answer regarding worth, especially since the asking price has not been revealed. If you are simply looking for a "shooter", rifles are more accurate, and, your dollar will go much further.
