Re: 1873 cadet rifle

Thanks John. That's pretty much the message that I got from Dick also. The only part that remains confusing to me is the old high arch - how could it be part of a surplus parts rifle if the high arches were condemmed and supposed to be destroyed. I do realize that we are talking about a totally different era of arms mfg and that control of parts probably wasn't as strict as today. I do hope that everyone understands that I wasn't making any "claims" about this rifle, just trying to figure out it's story. BTW, do the records list the actual serial number of that first cadet rifle?
