Michael, It is a real gamble buying early 1873 Trapdoor Carbines online, as you well know, and from the pictures it is hard to tell if it is genuine. I see the barrel band is on backwards, which tells me the seller does not know much about it either. Also the serial number is not a very warm number if you are looking for 7th Cavalry carbines. But if the stock is for real, it may be worth looking at. I believe it did have a three day return, which is good. Jim
