That would most probably be a late Model 1884 rifle, which originally had a sliding bayonet, and a 32.6" barrel. Since you say there is only one barrel band ("clamp") it has apparently been modified after leaving service. As such, collector value would be minimal at best, but they are great fun to shoot.
