Please read pages 154-156 in Book II for shipment clarifications associated with serial number ranges and when the armorers made the shipping crates.
If indeed the 7th received only guns from the first shipment to RIA, then all the carbines have to have the thin firing pin comb and the original thumb piece since the grinding to open the clearance started in late 1874.
Also, they would not have the stacking swivel since it had not yet been prefected.
Be VERY careful about verified Custer battle carbines!!!
