Re: Chicago Police Trapdoor and Peking Krag

Silver lining in the cloud for those who have the data and are interested in Krags, and history: There are about 70 carbines with the SAME citation - mine is 70210. Something to look for - perhaps not at the level of LBH carbines, but getting darn close. The unit (Troop M, 6th USC) was commanded by CPT (later MG) DeRosey Carroll Cabell, whose name is impossible to forget once seen.

I bought the gun from Bob Hill, Al's co-author, MANY years ago - LONG before I stumbled onto the Peking connestion. Even though I'd paid TOP dollar ($375) at the time, he had seller's remorse almost instantly, saying a little voice was telling him he had made a mistake.
