I have what is described as a Model '94 on the way, with a 23.25 inch barrel. The seller says it's a cut-down, not a carbine, but the front and rear sights look original. Can someone explain the whole "cut-down" process to me so that this description makes sense?
TIA

Serial number (673X) shows an 1895 date. Here's a pic:

Maybe I'm not asking the right questions. If this started life as a Model 1892 rifle;
- was the original barrel cut and a new front sight attached, or was a shorter barrel mounted?
- was the original stock cut and modified, or was it replaced with a carbine stock?
Thanks.

Great info, thanks!
So I guess the big question is who did, and how the barrel cut/recrown/sight reattach was done. If done well, should be a great shooter, my primary goal.
Thanks again.
