Dick, Glen was a regular at the old Great Western show he was in the center of big building four Just down from Dave Saks. I purchased a number of items over the years from him there. I have no idea when he obtained the carbine but am sure he feels its correct as he is as honorable a person as you could want. I have no idea who the author who wrote the MAA article for the magazine is or how much FLUFF was added by the author or magazine. For now the market will tell how it will go. The forensics we have discussed that, just this Sunday at the range the ONH group [Old No Hair]talked about that and we took a springfield and fired a round in it then taking another case inserted a primer only and droped the hammer on it I will say that there was a big difference in the impression left in the primer. So unless they compared the fired battlefield case to a Benet fired round I say there is not going to be a match. Just for thought on Tv when you see them doing arms testing for a match do you see a primer fired or a round fired into a tank of water or other media?? Frontier West here has picked up buckets of fired cases and I bet he has as have I noticed when the Benet round is fired the case obturated at the mouth and the case head is forced back into the breech blocks face leaving a dome effect as the internal primer cup moves back forced hard onto the pin as well.
