Re: 1873 rifle on gunbroker

I'm not so sure about the front sight. That rather LOOKS like the later two-piece item.

Why not ask him what the barrel proofmarks are? Trick question - there should not be any at 39xxx.

I think Pettit is a pawnshop - most of their stuff is pretty rough, but, a bargain can be had once in awhile.

IF the barrel has not been changed, $890 is probably fair - otherwise, IMHO, it's a little high in this market.
