I just purchased a 1922 model 90 with a plain pistol grip in 22 long rifle. It has a pistol grip with black Winchester cap with engraved screw. It does not have any checkering. The barrel has the patent info with Model 90 -.22 long rifle. I have only found a few photos of two other rifles with a plain pistol grip. But those other calibers. Do I have a very rare combination?  I am trying to get the Cody letter but I am worried I won’t get the configuration letter with a 679xxx serial number. Any info would be appreciated.

Hello Shaun,

Yes, it is a relatively rare Model 90 rifle… the cartridge chambering all by itself is not very common.

The Cody Firearms Museum will only be able to tell you when the serial number was applied. It is not necessary to post the “xxx” in the serial number.
