Jarrod, that is a carbine,sounds in rough but in untouched condition as to stock, since you still see the P on the bottom of the stock. #126597, a 77C, went to the 5th Cav., a fine unit, as did a close range of serial numbers not that far off from yours. I would say you have a keeper. :) Find out all you can about the owners of the farm and their history, you may find a Great Granddad or such that served in the U.S. Cav. maybe even the 5th! This is where the real fun can start. It may be beat up but it may have a great history. Congrats.
