    Q:  Just to correct you on the serial number and date of manufacture. If the # is in the 160,000-170,000 range, it would be a date of 1880-1881. Alaman 02/16/2012
        A:  My rifle's serial# is in the 162,000 range and it sounds as though you know better than I. I found a web site and maybe they aren't as reliable or I made a mistake. Thank you for your input. And yes, still an Antique. 02/19/2012
    Q:  Is there any history to go with this rifle, also what if any modifications or refinishing has been done? Do all numbers match, if no what doesn't match? 02/26/2012
        A:  I don't know that there should be any other numbers but to the receiver. I just bought it a few years ago, reloaded for 45/70 and enjoyed shooting it in a lighter load than modern specs. Thanks 02/26/2012
