    Appear to be a very nice example of an 1896 Carbine, well worth the current price and quite a bit more - I see no "issues" and the metal finish is remakably uniform. However, the RR connection is JUST a story which cannot be proven, one way or the other, unless new records are found - don't pay any extra for it. Like the gun as-is, or pass.

    I actually didn't care about the story, I was just looking at the carbine itself, the price seemed right but you never know I see people over bid on stuff all the time.

    I doubt that it will close at where it is now. IMHO, you'd be safe up to at least $1500 or so. I'm not bidding, have too many already!
