I have a 1893 that I would like to use as a doner receiver for a 38-55 barrel trans plant. It's an early receiver with no cairer cut out, but has the side screw. The butt stock serial # doesn't match. It also wears a model 36 ADL barrel with 36 fore arm and hardware. It looks to be a factory rebarrel in 30-30. My question is, is their any way to find out what it started life as. It's sn is 299948.Any help would be help full. Thank you WW

That came out very nice!

May I ask who did the case color on it?

Is it a modern 38-55 barrel or an 1893 barrel?

Either way that's a fine looking rifle!
Al Springer , Snowy Mountain Bluing in Moore Montana Color cased it. I polished it.

The barrel is a new old stock 1893 I found on E bay. I was looking for a take down and found both. The take down is a BP only, also new. I needed a place to use the barrel and the 1893 / 36 drew the short straw because it was parts anyway and it only had value as a shooter. Now I need to find a 36 in need of a new A front end assembly. WW PICT0435.JPG PICT0433.JPG PICT0437.JPG

I wonder what the receiver started life as. It would be nice if it were 38-55. Some one hear used to look the SN up and could tell. Can't remember who. WW
