    I put out some feelers on the brand today looking for a history.

    Thought was the brand is a "Bar Lazy L". Anyone?

    Yuma Co Az.

    Could easily be any of the translations mentioned prior in the thread including Broken T. "Bar Lazy L" came from a old ranch hand still living in the Yuma area. Just another suggestion from a guy use to reading brands.

    I'd have typical thought it was lazy "Rafter" "<" ( very common brand sign) rafter, on it's side normally makes it "lazy" rafter. The T, if it is a T, is on it's side or bent, so lazy as well. But as you say, it could just as well be "broken".

    Interesting brand, and for me anyway hard to read, so I've been puzzled. The idea with brands is to keep them simple but hard to run (change). This one is annoyingly simple but it would be easy to run if one were a mind to.

    Wasn't cheap to get that brand engraved on the gun either. I have a family gun with the brand carved into the gutta percha grip. Easily done. Your ranch's brand and the County on the gun? Someone put effort and $ into that gun.

    Looks like a Bar Lazy V maybe? Get an old Arizona brand book, where the gun says Yuma that is where I would start. Either that or the Yuma Museum.

    Unusual, the Ranch is very crude, and the Yuma very professional. Obviously different engravers, looks like they squeezed the Ranch in later, or added the Yuma.

    I wish I knew what the brand stood for but I do know where that gun is for sale. Don't worry I haven't bought any of their guns as they always end up selling for more than I can afford. But it is nice to day dream about them, kinda like when people day dream about winning the lottery.
