No, I'm just not in the habit of following Amoskeag. I know they exist, but I seldom check them. I suppose I should - thanks for the heads-up. Don't do Cowan's either - Jack knows way too much - no chance whatsoever of a sleeper; I'm a bottom-feeder, using my knowledge against the second-tier vendors. The big guys price their stuff out of reach.
Some problems there too, with 23164 (which, BTW, is NOT a good carbine range - lots of queer guns there. Block should not be case colored, there is no such thing as a "low-arch" block with that marking. Block is later than serial number. Ring is early, but I believe bar is late. Cartouche looks a trifle hinky. Way too pretty - even if it were correct, it's a no-history closet queen. The cheaper one would be a better buy.
