I brought it home...couldn't help myself. It is in pieces right now for a good cleaning. So far, all of the metal is in really good shape(other than being D&T'd for a peep sight), and the serial numbers are matching as well (40377).

Will do. I got it back together today, but was more worried about playing with the sights and getting things lined up. I'll try to get some this week. At first, I was sad that it had been D&T'd, but after a good cleaning and closer look, I likely would have done the same back in the day. This is a nice sight...an old blued-steel Lyman 56 (no 'A') with nice positive click adjustments. I don't know if it is 'period correct', but it is decidedly vintage...

I didn't even know I wanted a Trombone until I read this thread.

So it's been a busy 6 weeks with about 10 Trombones arriving. Today I won at auction an unusual version;



Described as a Winchester Model 67 Pump Action (Which is a bit of a trick since the 67 is a bolt action) on the hang tag and as "Winchester Model 67 Barrel Mounted on to a Remington Trombone Action" in the auction listing!

BUT... in their defence the barrel says....



Isn't this madness?? I can't wait for it to arrive.

What kind of a story does this Trombone have to tell!

So I bought this at auction for the grand sum of C$275 plus fees, still inexpensive.

The pictures show a fair amount of surface rust.







It's obviously had a hard life and the buttstock is damaged and cracked but original, The front sight has been filed down somewhat and it has a plastic Ithaca butt plate.

However I thought it might clean up well.

Very early rifle, about 98XX serial number.







The underside of the barrel and pump handle are essentially original with no rust, the receiver (lower) when taken apart is free from rust and the barrel is actually in very good condition. The rear sight is original (missing the little elevation screw) but everything works.

I'd like to pop it into one of those tanks that removes the rust using electricity and diodes (whatever they are called) but I don't have access to them. So steel wool and Hoppes and other oils to clean it up.

Far from new and has been treated poorly but not the minor traffic accident that arrived either. Good to see all the unblemished spots free from rust with all the inspectors marks etc clean and present.
