Thank you all for the insight: Mr. E.Brandt, Mr. D.Hosmer, Mr. B.Koenig and Ken. I am very regretful I did not get the before pic's either. I did uncover what appears to be a rifle or rack number stamped in the top edge of the butt end [39]. I also have to admit my now 50 year old and obviously failing eyesight, the "1893" mentioned originally has probably been an "1873" all along. I have now invested in a table top mounted magnifying glass with the fluorescent lamp inside to assist my decrepit vision. I feel like I'm joining a new family here and can't say thank-you enough for taking the time and interest in my Trapdoor Project. Pictures will follow.
