Thanks Jim. I'm really wanting to understand as much about the .45-70's as I can. I hope others will share any insights they might have.

Mr. Hosmer's collection site is a huge wealth of information...thanks for sending. I've bookmarked it and will use it for future reference.

Also, in one of your previous posts, you mentioned:

"There were a couple of serial numbers close to yours: 379751 84C 073196 SGT H. W. BIVENS TROOP C 10th CAV., 379756 84C 040887 SA(Targeted)."

What do the "84C" prefix and "SA(Targeted)" indicate?
