Re: 7th Cav trap door?

The markings you describe are quite typical of those applied by State troops to their M1888 rod-bayonet rifles, during the Span-Am war period. Sounds like a very nice piece on its' own without trying to drum something up on pure speculation.

I would think that any tie to the 7th USC would be somewhere between slim and none. But, let's see what the serial number (as John suggested) tells us.
