Interesting Rolling Block

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I recently bought a rolling block that seems to be a Spanish model, but it has an interesting bayonet mounting system and the front sight is unusual, I'm posting some pictures to see if any of you have some opinions on what it might be. It has the screw retained firing pin and the bar type extractor. The barrel is 35 & 1/4 inch long and I'm pretty certain it's in 43 Spanish caliber. One of the few marks on the barrel is a "P" near the lug for the forend. It had been nickel plated sometime in the past so I was thinking it may have come back from the Spanish-American war and nickel plated as a war souvenir.
Also, all the barrel bands have a 5 pointed star over a 1/4 moon stamped on them, never seen these before.

Welcome to the shooters forum.

Some photos would be helpful. Since you are a new member you won't be able to post pics. You can upload them to a photo server and post a link to the location here.
Plan "B" is email them to a member who can post them for you.
Still Learnin' as I go!
