Default Presentation Carbine

Here are some pictures of the Ormond Smith Carbine that have graciously been furnished by the current owner, John Eckert of Albuquerque, NM. Ormond Smith was a partner of the prominent publishing house of Street & Smith. It was presented in September of 1902 and has a 5-position tangent or "ski-slope" rear sight. On the rear sight, the small depression in front of the sight blade is gold filled. Unlike the smooth pushbutton of the flat board 7" Luger stocks, the presentation carbine stock pushbutton is checkered. The serial number of the gun is 77. Truly a collecting treasure.
