I came to the realization that a separate Topic was in order for the Model 1894 and as such, I have created this post.

As many of you already now, I have been researching and surveying the Model 1894 production for the past 19+ years.  My focus has been on two specific serial number ranges; 354000 – 1079689 (May 13th, 1907 – December 31st, 1931), and 1079690 – 2600011 (January 1st 1932 – April 29th, 1963).  To this date, I have documented 10,151 specimens in the 1st serial range, and 16,232 in the 2nd serial range. The reason for the split surveys is the fact that there are approximately 75,000 Model 55 and Model 64 rifles that are mixed inside of the 2nd serial number range (for which I have separate surveys).

I am including a set of tables below (from the 1st serial number range survey only) to show all interested readers an example of the information that I have compiled thus far.  I have additional tables created in the survey that provide detailed observed statistics for many other features.  If there is a specific interest in seeing that information, I can provide it in future posts.

The attached tables should be self-explanatory, but all questions are welcomed.
