    A friend has one of these rifles with a serial number of 132**. Can anyone estimate when it was made?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the leads. The correct serial number is 132***. The last digit was under the hammer. Silly me! Using the Oldguns site, the date of manufacture shows as 1880. I am glad to have this information. The rifle looks quite good to be 126 years old.
