"New" 1884

Posted by Cary Meyers on Wednesday, 23 February 2011, at 9:24 p.m.

I received the 1884 today and immediately stripped it down. I guess I 'm officially addicted. Anyway, I have two issues: the first is the cleaning rod stop is simply missing. Any sources for a replacement? The stock is likely not correct to the SN. The stock is 1890 and the SN is in the 380,000 range. The stock was also repaired, but I have to say the repair is very well done. The second issue is the trigger assembly which is a "one-piece" milled version which i think is correct for the very late cadets? I hope to be enlightened on this, but the trigger assembly does not seem to fit the stock correctly. The rest of the rifle is very nice, i have to say. It's in better shape than when i received my 1873. I might be looking to replace the trigger assembly or "trade" for one, since I think I have a relatively rare cadet one which is stamped: 2 M 44 I am completely in the dark on this marking. Any thoughts on this and where can i potentially acquire a "proper" trigger assembly and ramrod stop. Thanks!
