Let's not jump to hasty conclusions based on "close" numbers.

First there is a typo in the number you cited which should be 126596 (not 126597). Jarrad asked about 126735. There are two other guns listed that are closer than the 126596 (597) number cited, 126616 is listed as a Model 1884 Cadet rifle, and 126684 is listed as a Model 1884 rifle. This is followed by six more Model 1884 rifles, and then there are some more Model 1877 carbines.

Admittedly, Springfield did not assemble arms in strict serial number sequence, and it is very possible this is indeed a carbine. But, it is really stretching the point to only cite a number of another carbine, when there are cadet and infantry rifles even closer.
