Something I just acquired on a trade that is totally out of My realm;  1883 Hotchkiss 45-70 California contract with original converted Enfield bayonet ser#82484. Can some one tell Me about the “California Contract” , how many , when etc. and the apparent rarity of this bayonet.20220613_095908.jpgImage Enlarger

Henry,

   If you can, contact Jim Curlovic.  If you can’t find any contact info, then let me know.  I suspect his info is in the last “Collector” where he had an article (Part 1 of 2) on the Hotchkiss.

Henry,

  I was told by Jim to have you read the Summer of 2013 article by Rick on this sort of musket.  Page 17.  Think it will help your understanding of what you have or may have.  I scanned through the article and do believe it will help.  Tim

Henry:

What is the “rack number” stamped on the butt-plate?

Thanks,
