The 1st Allen Conversion Model 1865. Caliber .58 (not .50 or .515 groove). Just like the CW caliber. Same barrel actually.
Some were later relined to .50-70 for various reasons. The barrel caliber is the key element.
Thank you

You want the 58 rimfire conversion? Might have a line on one but from the verbal description I got, it may have been shortened at the muzzle.

Shortened is no real issue as long as it was not cut back a large ways. Couple of inches is OK... Not looking for a carbine.
The 1865 1st Allen was made as a rim fire. If it was "converted" to center fire that would be a plus.
Thank you
