Yep, we got a number of responses from people who said the same thing (we published an article about a pro-Czarist militia group that used those rifles in the US in the 1920s when I was on staff at Rifleman.).
Of course, we also had well documented reports of rifles that turned into grenades using factory ammo...
Same thing whenever we mentioned low serial number Springfields.
