Henry,

Can you please send me the CFM factory letter information for each one of your first Variation Model 1894s?  S/Ns 75 and 2215 are new entries in my research survey.

Thanks,

Bert

Take a look at the ser# application dates and the shipping dates , ser#75 was #’rd Oct15, ’94 but didn’t ship until Feb. ’95, about the same time as #2215. Now I need a single digit gun to round out this set.20230725_200430-1.jpgImage Enlarger20230725_200441-1.jpgImage Enlarger20230725_200458-1.jpgImage Enlarger20230725_200508-1.jpgImage Enlarger

To give you a some encouragement, I have personally seen and documented serial numbers 3, 5, and 8.  The factory ledger record (see picture below) is blank for serial numbers 1 – 7 and 9 – 17, but the rifles were assembled and are out there somewhere.

I don’t own any of them, but I did actually get to see and handle all of them (2 of them at past Cody WACA shows).
