Have been following the discussion of the "Custer" rifle with a good deal of interest. Here is my take for what ever it's worth. I'm sure the grandfather got the rifle from an Indian, probably Crow. Knowing Indians, I suspect The story he told was romanced a little bit. Believe the grandfathers story to be what the Indian told him. Where and how the rifle came into the hands of the Indian is doubtful
