    I have to wonder why there was ever tape in that location to begin with and my first thought is "DUFFEL CUT."

    I'd have to say no.
    $100 more and you can find one in military issue condition.
    Might be a neat "fun gun" for about $125.

    Iím stumped!
    It feels like an early design. Circa 1870 or so.
    None of the ones off the top of my head match though.
    Mauser 1871. Kropatschek. Gras 1874. Lebel 1886. Nothing.

    Agreed. Not a bad looking sporter. Maybe $450 or so to the right buyer. Perhaps $550 if you sold it locally in a FTF deal.

    The classic way to test for Bakelite is to rub firmly with your finger to heat up the surface. If you smell formaldehyde, itís Bakelite.

    Hello all,

    I picked this up in an auction lot of various M1 Carbine tools.

    You can get a VERY nice one on GunBroker for $800 or so.
