Re: Springfield Armory question

As I read Roy's book, especially the extensive ammunition section, the existance of just such an "experimental" rifle would seem to be entirely possible. I own a left-hand rifled M1877 carbine; they made a lot of back-room one-offs.

Is there any way you can show it to a knowledgeable collector, such as at the Baltimore show? Have you emailed high-quality photos to Roy? In what region of the country do you reside?

I echo John's sentiments about SA - I have never received a response to any of my queries over the years, and the search feature on their website can be frustrating to the point of being almost useless.
