    Look a little closer, to me it's L.C.F. Weeks and there may be something before the L. Sometimes you can't see something unless it's in a photo.

    Here you can see the shimming I've done. The Model 1917 is 2 thin shims directly under the centerline of the bore. The P14 required much more wood. You can see the shim here prior to trimming.
