who knows the ROA?
« on: December 02, 2018, 03:39:00 PM »
 I am sure someone or several of y'all know the correct answers to these two questions. Were all ROA made in Southport, Conn.? Do all the long barreled models have full length loading levers?  (^h

Let me rephrase the questions, do any of y'all that own an Old Army have one that was not made in Southport?  Anyone with the full length barrel have the shorter model loading lever? Just want to know, as I see one up for sale and would like to know if it is an oddball model or someone's conglomeration. Thanks for any help on this!

May not be much help but if you order parts for them you have to go through Newport New Hampshire. A Google image search turned up a long barrel with a short lever that was up for auction and the seller claimed it was new in box but it didn't sell.
