'US' Marked Rogers & Spencer
« on: July 22, 2015, 01:53:59 AM »

Well this is my Rogers & Spencer, in average used condition with all the standard military inspection marks. But it has two odd features.
First the barrel, sn 4687 is mismatched to the rest of the gun, sn 5032. Judging by the high serial number Id say that it was in the last batch delivered to the US military.
The second feature is that it has two US marks, one on the right hand side of the frame, in line with the cylinder stops and the second on the upper section of the right hand grip.
Does this mean that this gun was actually issued? Id like some opinions.
