Re: F-p M66 Rifle

SH&G did not supply M1866s to the French. Al's original idea that SA took the stock from an assembled gun, cut it to fit the M1866 breech, and then Hill inspected it the same as he did for guns made with new, or spare, rifle musket stocks is most likely. Hill's stamp would not have been available to H&G when they made up M1866s much later.
