I measured the chambers with a depth micrometer,
a perfect 3.25".
I can load a brass 2 7/8ths case in it and using a bore scope i can see lots of chamber still unused.
I am a machinist by trade, and the chambers don't show any demarcation line which I
believe would be present if the chambers had been lengthened.
So I can't help but believe that it was special ordered with long chambers.
Chamber wall thickness at end of chamber is .112.
Muzzle wall thickness is .096 for both barrels.
As I stated earlier, the only markings on this gun, are the name, New Baker, the serial number.
Matching serial numbers on barrels, water table, and forestock on both wood and metal.
Correction, There is a number 6 or 9 on the water table as well.
No marks on the Hook or on the rib.
I am somewhat at a loss, as this gun doesn't seem to fit any of the descriptions I see for Bakers,
