Re: Model 1879 carbine

Thanks for your response, Jim. I appreciate you taking the time to look up my SN.

I have carefully looked at the mark on the left side of the barrel/receiver joint and there is definitely NO line under the small "R" stamp. Also, there is not a punch mark by the receiver/barrel alignment marks on the right side.

I am fairly new to trapdoors but familiar with Krag and 1903 Springfields. I'm not seeing the usual indications of arsenal rebuilding (i.e. punch marks on metal and stamps on wood).

Thank you in advance for any additional light you might shed on my carbine.
