It was made sometime between 1886 and 1916. Even though all the parts work, it may not be shootable, especially with modern shells. If the hammers are on the back, it probably has fluid steel barrels and MAY be allright with lower pressure shells, but if the hammers are mounted on the sides, it may have twist-steel barrels that were designed for black powder ammunition. If you want to fire this gun, have it checked by an experienced gunsmith.

  • I may depend if it has the side hammers or back hammers. Retail to retail, he probably lost $100 or so, but if he had sold his newer gun to a dealer and bought the older one for cash, he wouldn't have done any better. The other guy would have probably gotten about $75 from a dealer and would have paid $200 or more, so he got a deal and your dad didn't really get burned.
