Bill and Don thanks for your help. I am going to shoot it and will replace the keeper. I remember reading about accuracy problems if it was replaced. I will contact Al for a new keeper. The gun cleaned up beautifully. I cleaned the stock with a rag and murphy oil soap and can see the wrist catouche with 1877 on it. I was thrilled to be able to read it. The grain of the wood stands out nice now.
