If Mr. Goss were to order a research letter, and I encourage him to do so, he will find that this gun was originally shipped as a Grade 2 manual extractor gun with one barrel. At some point after Crown Steel became an option for a Grade 2 gun and the roll check had been dropped from production, the gun was returned to Hunter and a second set of barrels were fitted; and that set appropriately Grade stamped to the gun. The roll check was not installed on the second barrel set because it was not necessary; the fore iron was all that was required to stop forward rotation of the barrels.
