Re: Is this kosher?

The W/E tables do not take the starred receivers into account, and those ultimately caused a hiccup on the order of 20,000 or so, right around the 180000 plus period. So, it is hard to assign an absolute value to the table dates. Too, arms were NOT assembled in order, which is another way that things can get out of sync.

I can tell you that 162036 is correct for 1881, and that 205617 is correct for 1882, which puts you close, if not right in there.

But, the rifle should be judged on its' own merits. Sadly, it's not an exact science, especially during that time period.
