View Full Version : 50-70 Carbine
Saw this on Auction Arms. 1861 Savage lock. 73 Trapdoor stock? Cut down 50-70 Trapdoor? http://buy.auctionarms.com/10117554/savage-r-f-a-co-1864-50-70-cal-breech-loading-saddle-ring-carbine
Lord knows WHAT that is - one thing for certain sure - it is absolutely NOT the rare M1870 Carbine, of which just 341 were made, nor could it be "restored" into one. Too many things wrong with it.
This will definitely put a dent in your wallet!
Now THAT'S the real thing, and the real world price, though Ken DOES tend towards the high end of the $$$ scale. In this economy I suspect he'll have it for awhile. :-)
A similar arm, also real, is on Frasca's site, for $8300. Just glad I got mine many years ago!
Sadly my wallet could never afford that beating. Come to think of it, neither could I - from 'she who shall be obeyed' - if she ever found out!
