Toby,

It is extremely unlikely that an 1892 vintage Model 1873 was factory fitted for a sound suppressor (silencer). Maxim was one of the first (if not the first) commercial makers of silencers, and they did not begin making them until circa 1907.

If you can post pictures of your rifle with the cap installed and removed, we might be able to provide more information.

My mind wandered off on a post I made today, too, Bert…but I figured everybody would pick up on it, so it was easier to just ignore it! Laugh
