Thanks for the info John. I need to study the markings a little closer, take some more measurements, a few pictures, and read a bit more on Mr Frasca website to see what we have. Neat gun though, also in the collection is what looks like old BP ammo, a neat brass bugle and sword. Bummer on the serial#, would have liked to tie it to a specific regiment. But I definitely have the bug to do the research now! Thanks for your response. Best Regards, Mark
