    I bought this today at an estate sale. It looks nice and came in an old felt lined leather case. I know nothing about them and haven't been able to locate a manual online. I don't know how to put it together for sure. Any info on how I can date it or get a manual would be greatly appreciated!

    I have one and Mine breaks down like this, the part you twist on the end of the magazine is different on mine, but the way you twist it on is the same.

    Wow, I think I done good! that link was/is great Thank tou for that. I checked the serial# and manufacture date is 1917. I will need to have it checked out by a gunsmith to make sure everything works right. I felt like it was cool when I saw the beautiful old walnut. My wife is nagging me about spending $260.00, Go figure!!

    Check the chamber length---a lot of old 16's were chambered for a shorter shell than the currently common 2 3/4". Most
    can easily be lengthened.
