Hello,

A friend of mine is curious to know the signification, if any, of a S.H.S. marking on the butt plate of a third model Winchester-Hotchkiss (in 45-70, if this information can be relevant).

On top of my mind, I thought it might be the logo of a cinema prop rental service (?)

Has any of you ever encountered this marking?

Are there any other non-factory type markings on the firearm?

Sincerely,

Maverick

Hello,

None on the photos I got or from what the owner told me.

Pretty standard Hotchkiss musket in 45-70.
