Hello Dick, The two carbines I have in the 19K range are 19300 which is the best condition First Model I have and the second one is 19432 and it is okay all correct but has seen some service. Various blemishes and the stock may have been lightly sanded some tie ago. No visible cartouche, P is weak. Bore has scattered pitting but strong otherwise correct. The first one is quite exceptional. The metal finish is a pleasant dark grey patina with absolutely no rust or pitting anywhere. Bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling. Stock is great with inspectors marks and no evidence of sanding just handling with a few very minor dings. 100% correct in every detail. Hope this helps. John
