Model 1885 Highwall Schuetzen missing serial number on lower tang. Can order number on buttstock be used to find the serial number?

Unfortunately, no, as those records no longer exist.

Gene,

The number you found on the butt stock is not an “order” number,  it is an assembly number.  The assembly numbers do not correlate to either an order number or a serial number.

thanks for your reply. I am a really old guy and stumble around this new electronic communication with some difficulty. I have two more questions. the first is what year did Winchester start making the Helm pattern? and secondly how rare is my helm pattern high wall with a No.5 – 32” barrel with the top three flats matted. Name style and caliber is on the side flat. its a 32-40.

Best regards

Gene

Gene,

The first Schuetzen Rifle assembled was serial number 73589, received in the warehouse on March 14th, 1896.  Nearly all of the 1st and 2nd variation Schuetzen rifles were Helm pattern.  The 3rd variation Schuetzwn rifles were predominantly the Laudensack pattern.

There were just (3) Schuetzen Rifles that letter with a 32-40 caliber 32-inch No. 5 octagon barrel, and just one with the top three flats matted… S/N 74926 (a first variation with a Swiss Cheek Piece vs. the more common Dutch Cheek Piece).
