Hello all, My carbine arrived today, hoping to find more info now that I have it in hand and not going by pictures. As I stated in past post the receiver serial is 452515, the cartouche is 1882, and itís not a cut down stock, confused as no carbines in 82 other then star guns, the barrel has a small eagle head not large one, lock plate and breach block have 1873 marked on them the trigger is grooved. Stamped on both sides of stock centered and at the bottom next to but plate a approximate size of 1/2 inch is the letter A and on top of comb is an A above 399. Front sight blade appears to be brass looks old and worn. Gun looks to have not been apart in a hundred years or so, could this have been an early star rebuild that was rebuilt again with a 1889 receiver. Just going buy tidbits from the Poyer book. Any more help or things to look for is much appreciated. If pics would help I can send them off to anyone. Sorry for the long post. Thanks Robert
