Re: trial rifles

Hello Terry,

Now you have piqued my curiosity, and I will back and check the "US" again carefully. Yes, the gun has very little, if any, of the blackening, but (as I recall) there is no sign of the periods after the "U" and the "S".

And I will check the breech black (and all of the other details also) on my M1870 carbine. It is a pretty "minty" one, but I have not readlly studied it in detail (but I shall).

Thanks for your excellent postings.

Best regards,
