Hi I'm new to this site..but I have a question about this rifle?
That looks like a nice example of an 1894 saddle ring. If it were made in 1896 it wouldn't surprise me too much.
I think you submitted the post without actually asking your question.
Thankyou.im new I have quite a bit of learning. I also have this one I'm sure about it is a winchester. Can you maybe help me?
25-35 is an awesome round to shoot from those.
I'm not sure but is that the same equilivent as a carbine.
the low wall?
t has the same pressure capability as the lever rifle so no worries about shooting the same ammunition in them.
your bigger worry will be actually finding some to shoot in them.
Hi thanks for reply. I have the amo for it but was hesitant about shooting it.
It looks like an 1885 low wall. I’m not as familiar with these. I don’t know what all they were chambered for either, but I think they were originally a .25 caliber cartridge.
They were reintroduced recently in a whole host of cartridges. Based on condition, yours is likely to be a modern make. It could be chambered for almost anything.
Actually its original and antique it ..is just in really pristine condition.
What cartridge is it chambered in? The same .25-35 as your carbine?
Yes.i found the amo that my husband reloaded sometime back..before he passed away. We used to shoot alot but I never shot this beautiful gun. I inherited so many .
He had good taste. The three you've posted indicate a nice collection.
Feel free to ask any questions on anything. Targeted or specific, we don't care. We just like firearms, old and new.
And if you get bored drop into the welcome forum (if you haven't yet) and say hi.
Very nice firearms...
And here's a link for the introduction forum...
Kaye. Look on the barrel for the caliber of the second rifle. I'm guessing it might be a .22 Hornet.
Carbine just means a short rifle.
The saddle ring carbines were short rifles designed to be attached to a saddle, making it very difficult for a mounted soldier to lose his rifle.
I don’t own carbines in .25-35 or .32 wcf. Your posts have highlighted a serious hole in my collection that I am now trying to rectify. I’ll make a new post when I inevitably locate one I can’t walk away from.
