1881/1882 dated rifles

Posted by Chip on Thursday, 15 September 2011, at 10:54 p.m.

Is there a large discrecpency in the rifles produced them. I see them with the 1873 block, but one will have buffington sights, the other not. There will be a differance in clearing rods. Sometimes old sight newer rod, new sight older rod, both new, both old. I know they used parts from the bins and sometimes stuff got left on the bottom layers. It is just confussing when you see a 1881 dated rifle with a buffington sight and a 1882 dated with out.

Thanks for any help setting me right.
