If you hold down the Ctrl key and scroll up or down with the mouse it should enlarge it. This guy could have at least asked permission to use this photo. I don't know what his problem is.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that once someone posts a picture on the Internet, it's basically a free-for-all. Anyone can take it and use it

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately, I still can't see it clear enough to tell for sure. Cartouches that sharp are pretty rare. Here's a good post on the real ones. Maybe someone with better eye sight can make a better comparison.

I did not list this carbine for sale, just showing it off. I just don't know what he's trying to prove. If you could see the condition of this carbine, you would not doubt the authenticity of the cartouche. He's really got me ********ed off, never asked a question, just did this.

The Cartouche looks promising , But I would like to see a clearer picture before Id say one way or the other . Here are some examples to compare !
