Herbert,

I guess Mor-Kik has answered that nagging question of whether #1335 was ever built. I bought the stripped receiver from S&S Firearms, so they may have sold the barrel previously. Mor-Kik, what are the specs on the barrel #1335? Is it a standard 6-groove M1865 carbine barrel?

Noop - 28" sporting rifle barrel, 56-46 caliber.  I'll see if I can get some better photos of it and post them to a separate 'Sporting Rifle' thread.   I thought it was interesting that it's cut for both blade and Lane extractors.  It's missing the sights, but still has both forearm blocks firmly in place.

Interesting, makes one wonder now who got the lower block and the other parts?

Actually it's a 26" barrel, measuring from the back of the breech to muzzle. Larry Romano has refreshed the rifling and chamber, and I'm in the process now of rebuilding the rest of the sporting rifle as a restoration.
