Went to buy some dog food and found a 1893

Re-Post of my 9/13/2013 Post:

Well not in the same place. The feed store is next to the Gun Store.

Looked at two 1893s and the cheaper of the two at $150 was all matching....what?!? Let me look at the bore...Nice and shiny and strong rifling. Cleaned no cosmo....and all matching. I bought it! Does have a pistol grip stock but Candyman said that is the old style stock with the spring holding the rear band.....

Some pictures!

Went over to Turkmauser.com come and filled in the serial number form and got the following:

Your serial number is greater than any existing report for this model in 1935.

Yes, but did you forget about the dog food? I don't see any pictures of it! What brand, year, model, still in original packaging? We need to know!

Nice find on the gun! That is a nice looking rifle.
