serial #F196, 45-60, 22" round barrel with full magazine and a worn and pitted bore. This carbine features an "S" lever and bears the italicized "WHITNEYVILLE ARMORY" address without the word "KENNEDY". Metal surfaces of carbine show 95% of an older reblued finish with scattered pitting and some polishing marks visible. Also several frame screws were not removed for polishing so they are now flush with the side of the frame. The plain walnut stocks rate good plus with added light finish and with normal handling marks, they fit well and do not appear to have been sanded. All markings in metal remain legible although they are light in some areas. Carbine features a standard carbine stud front sight and later added folding rear barrel sight. This is a well-used carbine which was "restored" at some point. An example to fill that slot until a better one comes along. (18315-95LTS160) {ANTIQUE} [Lewis T. Steadman Collection] (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $1,725.00
