Definitely a Heinz 57 carbine. I came up with 10 discrepancies after a cursory look. 1:No sling ring 2.Undated lock 3.Buffington rifle sight 4.Wrong butt plate screws 5.Butt trap screw/spring missing 6.Barrel re-crowned 7. Late Breach block 8. Should not have barrel proofs 9. Should not have a butt trap 10. Short wrist stock (some of these are interrelated). This is a fun exercise, Dick. Keep them up!
