Lebel rifles aren't necessarily antiques. Sniders can be repro's too. An original Burnside is probably far to valuable to even consider shooting. Don't think 19th Century firearms had S/N's on the parts anyway.
"...the ones with non-matching numbers look good..." Have been refinished by Bubba. Any refinished milsurp is of no interest to collectors. Little or no investment value either. Except as a shooter. For those find a source of ammo or brass before spending any money. Prvi supposedly only make the rifle ammo seasonally. 8mm Lebel is revolver ammo too. Ain't the same thing, so if you're buying on line you need to pay attention.
Do not get your education on YouTube either.
