What is the 1890 chambered for? Does the barrel say .22 long rifle .22long or .22short or does it list all of them? The early ones are single chambering. The post 1906 models can chamber all three .22 rounds.
i don't know. I got it cause i found out they have special deer season formuzzle loaders and some of my hunting buddies said "yeh sounds great lets do it " and now 3 years later i have yet to even shoot it because they all bagged the idea of muzzle loader hunting
