And it’s even a, “pre-64” model!

What I do find interesting is that it is pistol-grip, uncheckered.  

And it’s a 32WS!

I had this one in the survey already but I added a note that its the ultra-rare Pre-64 variant. Its the first one I’ve found so far, and so scarce I don’t even think I will add another column in the spreadsheet for them. Surely one of one. 

All kidding aside, the Plain PG stocks are cool.

Hi Gary,

Just came across this one this morning. It’s listed incorrectly as “carbine.”  Looks like serial number 1050593. Are the barrel markings correct for this timeframe?  Or has the barrel been replaced?

Good morning Don

A new entry for the survey, and a very late one. I think the barrel markings are right for a piece that late but wont bet the farm on it. It it weren’t for the short sight spacing, I suppose the caliber/model marking might be slid back towards the receiver. Honestly, I don’t study the markings as closely as I should, and there’s only 28 short rifles in the survey out past 1926. They seem to drop off rapidly after about 1918.

Also, the front sight in interesting. Do you recognize that type? Not sure if I like it or not, kind of bulky and obnoxious looking.

Interesting stats.  I don’t recognize that sight and don’t care much for it either.  It seems that blocky of a sight would hinder your view of the target to some degree.

Gary,

We apparently need to compare our surveys… I have considerably more post-1918 production short rifles in my survey than you have.  For instance, you show significantly fewer than (10) for the year 1920, whereas I have (11) of them documented for that year.

 

Don,

Of interest, S/N 1050645 is identically configured to the subject rifle, and both were manufactured on 7/8/1929.

No kidding!  It’s located only about an hour away from me so I wouldn’t even have to pay for shipping…
