Some time ago a purchase an 1890 WRF 3rd generation with no serial number on the tang, It has a serial number on the receiver in the typical location of a 3rd generation gun. It is roll died deeply and appears factory, R316. Below the R316 is the letter A. Has anyone seen a serial number on an 1890 similar to this or have any ideas if it is indeed a factory number?
