Thanks for everyone's input and responses. The rear sight discussion was quite educational!  Is $1,000 to 1,100 a fair price for one of these carbine's today?  Bore is excellent.
Thanks again.
Mark

I don't think you are being taken for that price range. The lower the better but that's a great carbine. It might be the lighting but the hand guard does look like it's darker than the stock but that's not a problem.

Good carbines like this really are solidly selling for $1,200 to $1,500 as far as I've seen.

A good bore does make it worth more.

Remember about price with firearms- you never pay too much- you might just be buying it a couple years too early!

In a few years, these nice carbines will be fetching $2,000.

The price quoted seems fair.

Was I correct about your serial number?

Peculiar 'cartouche', SRS 'hit', comparatively rare rear-sight, and excellent bore may add to value for serious collector.

Hand-guard looks to be American black walnut. Stock is Italian walnut.
