Good day folks;
I am new to this forum and have a question for those folks who are knowledgeable in the early Model 99's.
The gist of it is , that a gentleman has a model 99F Saddle Ring Carbine for sale in 30/30 cal. By the serial number looks to be 1914.
He states it has a heavy barrel with newer sights . there are slight wrench marks on the barrel on either side of the fore wood.
My question is : Did this year and model come with a 20 inch heavy barrel? and what pray tell is the visible or measured difference in this or what would be the proper profile If this is a swapped barrel for this gun?
