Could you explain this in more  detail?  

Harper's Ferry didn't make "production" pieces?  So  a gun wasn't able to 
shoot a projectile from the ones at Harpers Ferry?   

What is meant by "model" pieces?  Did they have to be shipped to  another 
location then for completion (which I assume is then  Springfield)?


-----Original  Message-----

Harpers Ferry only made the pattern or "model"  pieces.  It didn't make any 
production pieces.  Manufacture was at  Springfield, with some limited 
contract production by D. Nippes, and L.  Pomeroy.
