I just got a lightning carbine in 44-40 cal with British proofs on the barrel and receiver. The Colt letter states 50 guns sent to the London Agency in 1885. I'm wondering if they were popular and what their use was in england or were they merely ordered and transshipped somewhere else? I also notice the slide locking lever are missing as well as the bolt roller. Does anybody know if they were already discontinued by the second year of production?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
