The Cody Records office offers additional research for a per hour fee.
Beyond the serial number and warehouse ledgers what other doucuments
would they have available for additional information on a particular gun?
Do you have any experiance or knowledge regarding this service.
As always thanks for sharing your knowledge.

With very rare exception, there are no other documents that are available to research. The one exception that I am aware of is the Model 21 Shotgun.

In most cases, the extended research consists of trying to determine how many guns were shipped on a specific order number, or how many with a certain feature were made in a given serial number range, etc., In nearly all cases, the information comes from the warehouse ledger records.

I pair it up with my trip out to the annual Cody WACA show. This past trip, I spent all of my available free time conducting my own research projects. I have not logged any significant time in the research office during the past two trips to Cody. I did spend a few hours down in the vault with Jesi this past July, looking at the Model 1885 ledger records.
