Re: High Arch Breach Block

Thank you for your response John. It has the eagle head with crossed arrows and US. It has the later thumb latch. My thoughts also on replacing with period correct, but I do like the firing pin return spring idea on the earlier version, wonder why they dropped this later on. I also shoot rolling blocks, and I really don't like the idea of the possibility of closing the breach block with a firing pin that may be stuck forward, which could happen with either rifle. I check for this condition on closing those without a firing pin return mechanism.
