Re: Springfield 1884 Experimental Carbine on Gunbroker

I should add that I do not know the seller, so have no interest either way. If I did not have one, and wanted one, I'd at least check that one out a bit further.

One thing I neglected to mention, and am away from my reference material, is that the muzzle diameter should be substantially more than that of a normal carbine (.730") since full rifle barrels were cut but not re-tapered, leaving a sort of ring at the muzzle because the normal crowning tool was used.
