Barrels are measured inside or breech face to muzzle at 32.6". Receiver and breech block were blackened. Hammer and lock plate were color case hardened. Barrel was national armory bright as well as the furniture. Rear sight was blued. The stock is oiled black walnut. Your rear sight should be a leaf type graduated out to 900 yards with a rather large V sighting notch. It appears your rifle may have a Model 1866 rear sight. Glad to help.
