Anyone know the total production numbers for the 1886 in 33 caliber. Can’t find anything in the search bar.

 Rick, 12,457 according to the Porter Research. Note: from serial number 146,000 to 150,700 no records were entered at all and from 150,800 to 156,599 the records were kept on 3x5 file cards. T/R

Thanks TR. That’s lower than I thought. Less than 10% of total production it would appear.

Rick,

Keep in mind that the 33 WCF was not introduced until 1902... 16-years after the Model 1886 was in production.  There are 8,200 Model 1886 serial numbers for which there are no factory records.  The research survey the Mark Yecha and I are working on covers the 8,200 serial numbers that cannot be lettered, and thus far we have found (417) of them (5.1%).  The survey is showing that 67.6% of those 8,200 missing records are 33 WCF caliber rifles, which would add an additional 5,545 to the 12,457 that Porter surveyed.  In total, that would be 18,000 +/- a few that were made in the 33 WCF caliber.  You might check with John Madl to see what number he came up with (in his book).

Bert, I forgot you were working on the 86 survey as well. That certainly narrows it down a little better & more of what I originally thought.
I’ll check with John also. Thanks Bert.
