This one has the octagonal barrel and Timney set trigger and is a sweet little rifle. It has a number of prairie dogs to its credit. You will love yours!

You have some nice guns, FatChance! What's the lower one?

Here's my 1885, a 45/70 BPCR acquired from a former client who owed me some $ and turned this over as part of his fee back around 1997. I've fired it a fair bit and it's a good shooter.
