Re: 1873 info

Serial number only occurs in that one place.

Both 8710 and 8710X would have same receiver characteristics; while 8710XX is not possible. Presence of barrel proofs, lack of date on lockplate, and the reported block inscription would make me strongly suspect that the true number is 8710X. Data is almost non-esistant in that area. Apparenty that range is fairly close to the beginning of a sizeable block of carbines - but, 87048 was a rifle.
