I've a 1st, 2nd & 3rd Model Carbines, but all are missing parts.
S&S used to have the only parts available, but some Clown up in Northern California bought them all.
So no replacement parts are available anymore & the afore mentioned Clown will not sell any of the parts that I need.

An elder gentleman from my church recently told me he had an 1883 Winchester in 45-90.  His great uncle was the original owner, and it has always been in his family.  He says that it is in excellent condition, and is going to shoot it when he goes to Colorado for the summer (to avoid the heat and humidity in Tejas).  Hopefully, I'll get to take a look see at it this Sunday after church...if'n he hasn't left for the Rockies.
