Circle P

Posted by Jim Meredith on Wednesday, 26 March 2014, at 9:47 a.m.

I have an 1877 carbine stock which the only marking is a faint Circle where the Circle P should be. It is the same size as the end of a 45\70 cartridge case. I assumed that sanding was the reason the P is gone. This weekend, I talked to a man who said that he has a 1879 carbine, which has also only a Circle and no other markings, but he said that his stock was still "proud",not sanded. Does anyone know if this proof mark was ever done in this manner. Thanks, jrmeredith48@yahoo.
