Well, the s/n is certainly possible, being between known specimens 320332 and 320352, and works fine for 1886. Trigger guard front nut is loose. I don't "like" the stock - rod groove and cartouche are funky. The latest word is that the rack & pinion rear sight is NOT correct on that model, but there definitely was a period in TD collecting when it was thought that it was, and, for SOME reason they do show up that way from time to time. Still, a rare arm, seldom offered for sale. Sad to see that the air has just about gone out of the balloon as far as prices are concerned. I thank my lucky stars that I bought early and carefully!
