Re: 1869 Cadet question

I would think that an individual stamped the "Rucker" on the rifle. The best book available would be

“The .58 and .50 Caliber Rifles & Carbines of the Springfield Armory 1865-1872” by Richard A. Hosmer,

Dick is a regular participant on this forum, just look for one of his postings, open, click on his name in blue at the top where is says "posted by" and send him an email, he will let you know how to obtain a copy of this book.
