Re: Carbine Model 1873 Serial number 148916

Posted by Al Frasca on Monday, 13 November 2017, at 12:43 p.m., in response to Carbine Model 1873 Serial number 148916, posted by Larry Sunday on Sunday, 12 November 2017, at 11:15 p.m.

Larry, any carbine in the 148000 range immediately reminds me to check the Indian Scout guns from Fort Supply, OK that SRS has posted. So far, three have been located. (See page 315 of the Newsletters) Since the carbine just sold had a very nice bore, it is hard to believe it had a lot of military service. The carbines sent to the Cincinnati Home Guard had been refurbished along with the M86 XC carbines. So far, I have not had a hit on SRS with regard to carbines once used by the military and later issued to the Cincinnati Home Guard.
