stud attachment note

Hey Mr. Stimson I'm not sure I'm familiar enough to respond well to the question and the pictures are limited but here is what I can share. The 10" is mounted to the frame and it has a pin through the barrel between the "R" in Rifle and the "E" in Supermatic. The pin protrudes through both sides of the barrel seemingly about where the stud should be. On the 8" barrel, there is no pin through the barrel, the stud is inset into a small square notch and there seems to be a small pin holding it at the bottom side of the barrel perhaps, would not be visible if the barrel were attached to the frame. So, it seems one of them would be incorrect for the period?

        Hi Ron, on or off the frame if there is a PIN you'd see it. It'd be above the frame Above the "E" in "supErmatic" stamped on the frame. Lacking a PIN there would lead to only one possible conclusion, ... more
