    I have this 32 cal. lightning. It looks to have two special order features nickle finish on the frame and butt plate and a rifle style stock instead of a carbine style stock.I am waiting on a letter from Colt to comfirm this.My questions are how rare is this gun and what might it be worth?

    That's a desireable carbine in excellent condition (though I don't know about the bore). I have no idea of how valuable it might be, but at the right auction I think you would be rather pleased by the results.

    The gun is in 32-20 cal it has a very nice bore 80% or better i have shot this gun it shoots like the day it came from the factory.I know they made about 90000 med frame rifles but i have no idea how many of them were carbines or how many were baby carbines.
