Tracking a Ballard Pacific

Post by Brent » Tue Sep 30, 2008 11:59 am

I have an original Ballard Paciific .45-70. It's a decent rifle and I'm going to take it elk hunting this fall. I would like to know a little more about the rifle however and I was wondering if there is anyone that can tell me when it was made and where it went when it was shipped from the factor to a dealer.

Can these rifles be "lettered" like some Winchesters and Sharps rifles?

Second, can an original Pacific wiping rod be definitively identified? And if so, how?

Thanks,
Brent
