Some of the first M77 carbines were made using early barrels and only have the small p on the barrel. Some have the large V/P/Eagle and the small p. Early in the production year (remember many of the guns produced in 1877 were guns with M73 parts since funding for new guns was not appropriated). That is why only 16 NEW rifles were made that year, but I have a listing of quite a few 1877 produced rifles. The early carbines made in 1877 all had M73 sights.
