i think i found one - not sure i want one , but its intrigueing ,
this fella we work with had seen some of my collection and knew id be one who appreciated this piece ,

its a old one , by the serial number its an 1892 vintage , from the photos the furniture is in excelent condition , and the metal finish is about poor + , nearly all the fimish is gone , perhaps 25% at best , but no rust or pitting what-so-ever , he is not much of a gun guy so i cant depend on him for the mechanical condition , will wait to see it in person , next week i think ,

good thing is these are real popular in cowboy action , bad thing is ive committed all my loose cash for the foreseeable future , i doubt he will be looking for any trades and im worried he will ask too much ,

if i can figure out how to get the photos uploaded to my photobucket account [have not done that in a while ] ill post them ,

any thoughts or recomendations ?

not certain what hes askin yet - but since my cash is all committed its probably too much ,

we shall see , i think he is bringing it into the office next week for me to look at it , if it was military marked trench gun id be more inspired ,

contrare SW - rossi is making current production copy in a short [coach gun length] for cowboy action shooting , ive seen a bunch of them at our SASS shoots , but you are correct in that winchester is no more , :>}
