M77 Paramount Studios Carbine, SN177614*

M77 Paramount Studios Carbine, SN177614*

This M77 carbine was produced in 1881. It has the SWP/1881 cartouche and circle P firing proof. We know little of its service life, but its life as a movie prop has certainly taken its toll. The stock is stamped with a large 316 in the wrist area indicating a property number. Between the lock plate and the band is the stamp: PARA??TA indicating the gun was owned by Paramount Studios and after the property abbreviation are several letters that I do not recognize.. It is a starred carbine with all the appropriate parts. The stock damage comes from daily hauling the guns off and on the set using a truck bed for transportation. The bore in the gun is shootable, but you would not expect a high degree of accuracy.

$1150 + S/H
