Al- Looks like he is pitching that to all the dealers he can find.
I cannot help him, but here is part of my reply:
"By the way, The Springfield Research database includes only 15 serial numbers in the 210xxx range. None in 2104xx range. Of the 15, four are cadet rifles, the remainder are all infantry rifles, variously reported as Model 1879 or 1884 (but that is usually just lack of understanding by the reporting activity with what we call them now). Usage information is widely varied with no plausible assumptions that could be made from the limited data which survived."
