Thanks Miller, I sort of thought that after Ky Jon educated me and I suddenly recalled the details about 17392. But, then re-reading the description, I got worried about the Birmingham proofed barrels. Serial numbered Reillys almost always (always?) had London proofed barrels. I think you and Ky Jon are correct about both guns....the 12 gauge Reilly with Steve Barnett was originally cylinder bore and was pre 1875 (we'll find out when we get the SN)...the honing left a slight choke on the barrel.... And the same can be said for Terry Buffum's 17392. - Now how to account for the Birmingham BP proof...?
