Fellas, Always interested in Custer range carbines but one thing that bothers me about #37846, is the sling swivel on the buttstock. Don't know if it was placed there at a later date or a rifle stock cut down to carbine length. On a side note, I would call attention to the recent issue, "Man at Arms" which has an in depth article on "Carbines at Little Bighorn" by C. McChristian with credit to Wiley Sword, John S. DuMont, B.D. Ernst,& our own, Al Frasca. Refreshing to see an article on Indian Wars weapons. I guess I'm just over demanding in my interest of articles to read. As to the elections, I can only refer you to Reagan's partner from across the pond, Maggie Thatcher (The Iron Lady), who would always say, "Don't go Wobbly", when the going got tough. Just gently remind your present representative what happened to those that supported Clinton's Assault Weapon ban in 94, if the subject of gun control should happen to come up. Nothing strikes fear in the heart's of politicians as the possibility of losing a seat on the gravy train.
