Dick, If I am interrupting it right, even if #8874 is not a 1st period production, it still doesn't answer the question as to why it isn't in the range of 7th Cav. issued carbines, if the example of a trooper throwing up a rear guard action & later, a defensive position on Reno hill, is to be believed? That is quite a gap between the serial numbers. I also find it odd that the term "pile" is used concerning the spent cartridges. I cannot imagine such a scenario and the only exception is MAYBE... spent cartridges from a Colt SAA revolver, which might be ejected into a pile but not a carbine. Possibly a poor choice of words but there are some unanswered questions to the article. I still find it interesting although, like anything concerning the LBH, many things will still always remain unanswered.
