If it has an external hammer, it is likely a Winchester M1890 or possibly a M1906, probably with a barrel from a Remington Model 12 or some other Remington model. If you could remove the tang sight,...

The M29B, although an excellent rifle, doesn't attract a whole lot of collector interest.
So, I wouldn't worry too much about a reduction in value from refinishing, and I would have to agree that a...
