I found this old forend in my parts bin, it has the June 1, 1880 Pat. date on it for US Patent 228,165. |
The original guns serial number is 42634.
I'm curious as to whether this could have only been on a Baker gun or was the same patent used on LC Smiths? If so can which gun it was on be told by the serial number?
Also, the end is 1.60in. wide, is that for a 12ga?
