    The "W" on the bolster of a Bernadelli Mississippi Rifle means the bolster is Welded on, rather than Brazed. The Brazed bolsters have been known to fracture, or blow completely off, at the joint.

    Exactly what John said. The company started welding bolsters and marking them with the ?W? to identify them as being safe. It?s odd and a little scary that many repros have soldered bolsters. Glad we have the approved arms list for the N-SSA.

    No, not the same

    FYI - Soldering is not brazing. Brazing is much stronger. Look it up.
