    I might be the first momo to turn the screws on this rifle in 150 years. I got a little excited when I started to disassemble this rifle to inspect for damage. As you can see in one of the photos, the barrel is still white underneath the barrel band! As I take it apart, I'll continue to photo the rifle and while I clean it showing the final conservation.

    Gun looks lonely. Needs company, like a Spencer carbine and a Maynard carbine.

    You think modern guns are addicting. :becky:
