    I couldn't help you with a value on your gun, but I will say those things are beautiful! I wish I had the funds to buy one. I'll probably end up settling on a Rossi knockoff since they can be had in the $200-$300 range.

    Is the 1890 a takedown model and if it only has a six diget serial number it is prior to 1907. What caliber is it S,L,LR or WRF?

    Correction all models were takedown after ser. # 15,499.

    I corrected my post as all were takedowns after ser.#15,499.

    The books say it is only for Shorts as they were not interchangeable.

    Is it color case hardened or blue?
    Is the stock checkered?
    Is the barell nickel-steel?

    I will try to figure the date out using the serial elswhere.
