However, one must also consider that arms which DID see similar usage may vary greatly in present condition due to all the variables in care and storage of subsequent owners. Bubba and his ancestors may not have cared as well for their guns as did the members of the Hosmer clan over the last century.
What we see today is the evidence of service usage, plus accumulated use and abuse since being "surplused" with the total service usage being 20% or less of the total.
