Re: 1873 Carbine # 39531

Jim, the carbine looks correct from all I can see, and a low number. I did not see any inspector marks on the stock, and that for sure concerns me. Also the tie in to the Custer battle is cute but unproven, thus not a valid selling point.
For the kind of money they are asking I would have to do a complete examination in person. These guns are being put together from parts, for me it would have to be completely correct, in all aspects.
