Is this kosher?

Posted by Jeff on Wednesday, 30 March 2011, at 5:21 p.m.

I recently saw rifle #183001 in a catalog. The Waite and Ernst production tables would put manufacture of that rifle (or at least its receiver) at around 3rd quarter 1882. However that rifle carries an 1881 cartouche.

Is it kosher that the cartouche would predate the manufacture of the receiver?

If someone were interested in purchasing this rifle is there an acceptable explanation for the seeming discrepancy?
