MOD-O6s.jpgImage EnlargerBert,

It took years and several '06s before I finally ended up with these two.  I consider the condition to be excellent with minimal usage and handling marks. I will try to get some better pictures.

Bert,

Are you and EW still collecting data for the this survey?  I have been busy working on a couple of projects and missed it. I have a very late Model 90 that may be of some interest.

Regards,

CPC

Yes, we are. I am currently putting together a rough outline for a future article to discuss our findings, and what the true production numbers and dates were for the late Model 90s and Model 06s.

Bert, thank you for the prompt reply.  Model 90, 22 Long, SN 854095.   Could be the last 22 Long produced in the Model 90 configuration.  It is a standard rifle with octagon barrel.

Regards,

Curt

Curt,

The survey supports your estimate of it being the last 22 Long made.

Thanks for the information,
Bert

Thanks for your contribution. Most additions to the file these days fit in with existing observations; this one bucks the trend. Not only is that the latest 22 Long documented, so far; it is the only 22 Long in the 70 rifles in the "cleanup" section (SN above 846022). The next highest 22 Long that I have is from an 838XXX receiver; that was serialized 11 years earlier.

Thanks for the comments, unfortunately I’m not where my Schwing books are.  I guess it is not fair to label it as a standard rifle. It has a crowned barrel, no markings on the tang, etc. Depending on who would grade it I expect it would fall in the 85-95 percent range. For its age some might consider it better. It’s a family rifle, originally purchased by my wife’s grandfather. Only have my phone so pics are not that good. If desired I can post pics here (survey) or in the 22 section.

It is a new serial number for the survey, and it was manufactured in September of 1930.

Thanks,

Bert

Hi Bert,

Picked up a cleanup rifle today:

SN 852950

Chambered 22 short

Round barrel configuration marked model 90

Rear sight is of the model 62 type

Wish it was in better condition...…...50% (maybe)  won't have my hands on it until the weekend after this one.

Best,

Erin

Erin,

Does it have 23-inch round barrel ?  Does it have a "B" on the end of the serial number marked on the receiver frame ?

Thanks for the survey information.

Hi Bert,

The answers to your questions:

Yes, it has the 23" round barrel.

No letter on the frame, just the serial #

If it matters:

I believe the receiver to be of the 62 type, no nomenclature on the tang. The bolt is of the 62 type, as it uses pins instead of screws to hold the firing pin stop in place. It does have the 1890, 1906 checkered hammer. It has 1890 type wood front and rear. It has 62 type sights. I believe the outer magazine tube has been replaced. (the existing one is of the non collared type used on first, second and early third models with the flat spring tensioner) I can see The relief cut for the magazine ring pin behind the rear magazine ring and very faint discoloration of where a ring was mounted at one time. The spacing of the magazine rings would dictate a model 62 outer magazine tube would of been correct for this rifle. The hunt for one has started.Frown

Erin,

First, thanks for the updated information.

I suspected that it would not have a "B" on the end of the serial number. The rifles with the "B" thus far are found with a 62A marked barrel, and have the coil-spring hammer. The Model 90s with a "62" marked barrel are found with a true Model 90 receiver group. This survey has been very educational thus far, and it will be discussed in detail with a future article to be published in the WACA Collector magazine.
