Mark,

As of today, there have been no detailed surveys of the Model 1873 records to derive the numbers you seek. The problem with trying to survey the records is vast amount of time it would take to look at 720,610 individual record entries. To give you an idea of the amount of time & effort involved, it took the CFM records office more than 3-years to survey the 353,999 Model 1894 records back in the early 1990s. More recently, I completed a caliber survey for the Model 1885 Single Shot. It took me nearly 10-years (several weeks per year) to complete the survey on just 109,999 records. Reading and interpreting the hand written records is a challenge, and it takes lots of dedication and time.

Thanks Bert for the reply. I was hoping the information may had been published somewhere and I was overlooking it. Are the surveys that have been researched posted on the site? Thanks again

Mark,

The CFM published the results of the Model 1894 survey in the ARMAX Vol V back in 1995.  I have posted chunks & pieces of my research surveys in various topics here on the WACA forums, and in my articles published in the WINCHESTER Collector magazine.
