I suspected that, but I Googled before I asked and saw some references to them. And, if not, why the name?

And, yes, what about the V?

My guess would be:

Modele 26:Mark I
Radio Improved:Mark II
Selmer Super (cigar cutter):Mark III
Balanced Action: Mark IV
SBA: Mark V
Mark VI: Mark VI

and I agree. I ain't never heard of such critters. 'Course, we don't know what they were/are making over in China and Taiwan. But the French didn't make'em.

There were at least two versions of the selmer super, and you didn't include the Modele 22, the Modele 28, the New Largebore (or maybe this is one of the SSS model, I don't remember).
I've been told, but have no way of verifying this, that there were five variations on the balanced action tenor between the first BA and what is known as the SBA. The Mark VI was the 6th version of the off set keyed version of the Selmer. That being said Ralph Morgan swears to me (as I've told him this theory before) that he's seen no fewer than seven versions of the Balanced Action alone.

I've shot things that can penetrate it! Try a 60 caliber APIT!

Where can you get A PIT in 60 caliber? Would a normal peach work?
