This ol' gal has been hiding out in my basement for too long. Time to give her some fresh air and sunshine!

It was made with the tang sight as standard on this Model. The receiver was made with 2 side plates riveted onto a 1/2" spacer as can be seen here.

Dang EM, have you got a time machine or something? You keep pulling guns out of the woodwork. Another nice one.

I'll bet Emery never walked passed a trade blanket at a Rendezvous without buying a rifle or two.  I wish I had the foresight to buy just a few of the guns I passed up.

Thanks guys. While these guns are not all that rare, they didn't make a bunch of them. The swinging breech models were only made for 5 years, 1920-1925.
