    You did well, Grasshopper! Swiss, or Connecticut militia? If the latter, 43 Spanish or 45-70? Henry rifling?

    Nope, nope, nope, and nope! 43 Spanish and 45-70 will not chamber, too long. No markings at all to indicate Romanian, Swiss or Conn. militia. And it is centerfire, as it was sold to me as being. The 45-50 cartridges, made from 50-70 brass chamber perfectly and I test fired a primer-only case. I need to load up a few cartridges and see how it shoots.
