Thanks! I've since had it re-worked by Todd Watts at The Blockade Runner, replacing the Gurkha markings with ones that would be appropriate to an early Birmingham (pre-BSAT) gun, so I can use it for re-enactments. He did a WONDERFUL job! I don't feel bad about the alterations, as the gun has little collector value (it only cost me $240.00 in the first place!), and with the extra work I have as much into it - and possibly even less - than a NON-defarbed Italian replica. I even have a properly marked and fitted bayonet to go with it.
