Can anyone ID this Carbine?
#1
No manufacturer inscribed
there is a +1 & a series of numbers stamped under forestock on the barrel & another series on the frame under the butstock, I'm assuming that is the serial number.
Has old tacksfor decoration like an old indian gun, but not sure if someone put those in to make it look like an indian gun or what...

Wish I could help you but I have no idea. Maybe it is an old Indian gun. How old you think it is?

I was thinking 1870's or possibly mid to late 1860's. But I'm no expert... that's why I'm looking for some help to ID it. I saw it today & couldn't put it down so it's currently on hold for me to try to research a little. Smile

Time seems right for an Indian gun.

It seems to be a Remington Rolling Block, which were made in various calibers from 1864-1874 as far as I can tell from some internet searching. There was a repro made but this gun has the patina & wear of an old gun. I just don't understand why there is no manufacturer markings.

Love the buttstock wire band. Where'd you find it? Damascus barrel?

The values are all over the place on them & range from $160-$3,000...
The price sounded fair at the time, but now I'm wondering if the price is good deal or not... It's on hold for me to research so I can still back out if I want.

The guy was priced right on the nose with a couple other guns there that I did know what they are worth, so I'm thinking he's got a fair price on it, but what would you guys pay if you saw it for sale, or ask for it if it were your gun?

These were made around the world, and that effects its value. Not knowing origin etc, tough call on fixing price. Plus that stock looks rough.

They'll offer $1.98 for it & try to make me feel like they are doing me a favor!



After consulting an acquaintance who is a contributor to several black powder & cowboy shooter magazines, as well as posting these pics two other places to get input... It seems the seller's best price is in the range for the gun, but about $75 too high for this particular one, so I'm gonna call him tomorrow to let him know I'll pass on it. If it were a fairly common cartridge & I could shoot it, I'd probably go for it, but I don't need to over spend on a dust collector.
