    Thought that some of you might be interested in this recent acquisition by a contact up there in Tronna -

    Seems that during your recent WoNA the naval forces of the Northern Agressors were in the habit of treating some of their on-board weaponry in this manner. I've seen a Colt navy revolver dealt so-treated, but not a long-arm.

    Interesting, eh?

    Neat rifle...If you look long enough at original records you will see references to "Japanning"...
    This was a "lacquer" that was original applied to wood then to metal as it was found to be rust resistant.

    Please don't sprain anything on my watch. I'd hate for anybody to get physically injured just trying to find out what a Sergeant's bore inspection mirror looks like...

    Darn it, I've just gone and given it away...............:(

    tac: This is hump day for my latest (and hopefully last) Surgery on my Ankle/Foot. Of course, now that you say that I can clearly see it. I've had the "Buy a Gun, Buy a Book"system going for a lot of years. Many of my books have come from the Museums which we visited. Thanks Again for sharing with the Ignorant Masses!:):):)

    Not ignorant, just less-well-informed. :)

    The amount I know about things could be writ on the eyelash of an angel in large letters.

    Take care - busted feets and I are old pals.

    Mine was a simple fracture on 17 May '16 and a less than complete diagnosis turned it into a lot more!
