There are experts and then there are experts - takes a while to sort the wheat from the chaff. You are absolutely correct that this (run by Dr. Al Frasca) is THE best TD site on the web, hands down. Don't know if you have tried Bowers LLC, or the modern firm in Geneseo IL which uses the name "Springfield Armory", but has NOTHING to do with the former government facility. Both (while being quite knowledgeable as to the current "black gun" period) give out misleading info about antique firearms.
