Re: when customer ordered a second set of barrels for a LC Smith already bought did factory stamp barrel
Tom I have seen two barrel sets with only one for-end but could not confirm if the loop was stamped with a 2, also could not confirm them with a shipping ledger. But it would make sense to me that if the gun came from the factory with a second set with one for-end then why would it need a 2 stamped on it. The only reason I can come up with is if the barrel was the same length but with different constrictions. Another possible explanation could be that it was stamped so the workers knew there was another barrel for that particular gun.
You have seen a lot more than I have, and I can believe what you are saying but have a hard time adjusting about it.
