Re: Very interesting reading relating to historic 1873 Carbines

Thanks for the heads-up! Interesting site - certainly has the goodies! I first found it in 2012.

I did note, and it may well be MY error (I'll check very carefully) but one of the carbines MAY not have the same lockplate that it did in 2012, the last time I visited. That would NOT be a good thing. Also shows that such guns are slow movers at $11,500.

Just a gentle word here, you need to be a bit more careful when quoting data - the work on the butts was (allegedly) done at Ft. Lincoln, not Ft. Robinson - unless Mr. Hendershott has conflicting info in two spots on his site. That is how misinformation spreads.

It's a great game!
