My carbine made in 1891. Rebarreled by John Taylor 5 years ago.

I did, that’s my Stoeger carbine build. The forearm is a severely thinned down 1876 NWMP carbine forearm. Drop down 4 posts on the ‘73 page and ‘extra, extra read all about it’. While my first love is my Marlin 1894 I’m finding that I like it alot and plan to shoot it again at this month’s match. Got the idea from Rattlesnake Jack as he also has a ‘73/‘76 full stock NWMP copy.

Shot it again yesterday at our match along with a couple of s&w .45s. I’m liking it but I had a hitch where it seemed that it didn’t want to feed the next rd and then it did? I’ll mess with it next week. Could have been me?
