    So next time I'm at the museum, I will inform the staff that it is actually a "C No. 7 .22cal" so they can correct the display. Are there any defining features that I could relay to them to support that? Is there a certain serial number location and format, perhaps?
    Without sounding snippy, the fact it's a 22LR and not 303 would be a good start.
    I'm here because all the smart people keep getting banned on the other site.
