The pics I'm getting show a full oct bbl - with what appears to be a more pronounced taper. What's up with the rear sight?

I'd feel a lot better bidding on this than the questionable 1881 shown in another post. SW

Oboy! I would have to say that there is a definite problem with the lever. Look at how it stands away from the bottom tang. I wonder if the tang is bent (but, WHY?)

I'd say that first one has a bent lever, not a tang problem. It appears that someone forced the lever open on a stuck case, and bent it in the process.
