Re: Why my hair is white

I have written to the seller. See below.

Maybe he will correct the listing & buy the book :)

Huckleberry This is a Model 1870!!!!!! Where do you come up with your info????? At one point you say it's a center fire & them you tell us that it is a rim fire. IF it was a Rim fire Model 1870 it would be one of the rarest rifles ever made. It would fetch more money than an "Officers Model" for sure. You might want to get your hands on AND READ, Dick Hosmer's book: "The .58-and.50-Caliber Rifles & Carbines of the Springfield Armory 1865--1872". Published by North Cape Publications, Inc. Oh, wait, Mr. Hosmer has already tried to enlighten you and you did not listen to common sense info. IF IT WAS A model 68 it would have the LONG nose receiver. The pictures clearly show a short (Model 70) receiver. Another give away. There is NO serial number on the receiver or barrel. The Model 1870 had NO SERIAL NUMBERS assigned to them. DO us all a favor & correct the listing to reflect the true model & type of cartridge.

Thanks, Ernie
