    1891 Argentine Cleaning Rod Question

    Hello, its been awhile.
    I recently picked up a beautiful cond 1891 Argentineicon.
    All numbers match, everything looks great. I don't plan on
    dissembling this rifle, but had a quick question.
    How is the cleaning rod retained in the stock, I know it screws into
    the stock but just curious is there a retainer nut somewhere near the front pillar?
    Once I get some time I'll post some pics of this baby

    Another thing I noticed is my barrel has a RB proof marking right above the scrubbed crest receiver ring. Never seen that before. Serial number is P84**

    One other question about the extractor. I checked the extractor and
    it has good tension. One thing I noticed is that it does have very slight front to back play
    in the slot, don't know if that's normal or not. I guess I'll find out when I go to shoot it soon

    There is a cleaning rod stud in the stock, very slight play in the extractor is normal.

    Nice looking rifle. I've got one that would pass for its twin.
