Carbine bluing

Posted by Jim Nevers on Tuesday, 4 March 2014, at 2:19 p.m.

I have an 1873 carbine which was manufactured in 1886 per the serial number. This carbine has a bright, shiny blue finish. I always assumed that it had been reblued but I just read that some came with a bright blue finish. Is there a method to determine if the finish is original or not?
