That salvo of ball-peen marks, though... Any idea what that's all about?

Have no idea. This was a strictly a parts gun. It’s over 125 years old. No idea why it has those marks. I was posting pics to show people what the forend tightening peen marks looks like. Disregard all of the other things going on….concentrate on the red arrows. There’s obviously not that many folks here that know what marks to look for, where they’re located and how they are used as a landmark in the trade to tighten a forend.

Thanks a bunch, Dustin, for those pics. That perfectly illustrates the process. A picture truly can be worth a thousand words.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

Stan,
Maybe it a difference between common British shop practice and common German shop practice.

American guns are adjusted the same way as Dustin is showing in the pictures.

The ball-peen marks are from someone trying to stretch the metal tighter to the opening.

Merci. Hopefully not during initial factory assembly.
