Nice find! Sad to see the scope mount holes, but it is still QUITE a deal. You did VERY well. It's an original cavalry carbine. What is the serial number, if you don't mind sharing. These are very tough to find. Total M1890 carbine production was around 110,000, and I think most of that was for the extra corps carbine. The carbine seems to be much less frequently encountered. It's nice to see the Wn 93 date on the barrel. Some do not have that marking, but have a slightly different eagle proof on the right side of the barrel and receiver. Can you post a clost up pic of the eagle proof on the side of the receiver?
Thanks,
John

Wow. Must be a regional thing. I think I've seen 3 or 4 ECG's for each Cavalry Carbine around here. Could just be a survival rate though...
I think the Cav. Carbine is the handiest of all. In some ways, I prefer it to the M95.
