Erin,

 

Thanks for the heads-up.

 

Edit to add:

As regards your earlier question about an estimate of how many round barrel Model 90s there are; I sorted through the available data in the survey and found that Bert's off-the-cuff answer of "1 in 1,000" is probably a high-reasonable estimate. I will make it a point to include barrel type in my future note-taking.

I found a few more but the sellers did not get a full pic of the numbers. Sent a couple requests and have not heard back...…..

Is someone researching the 1890's and 90's?  I have a couple and owned a handful more.

We are researching Model 90s, Model 06s, and Model 62/62As with serial numbers higher than 713199. If you have info on any that fit that bill we are definitely interested.

EW,

I've read several places about the "gaps" and non sequential numbers with the serial #'s.  Has your data thus far indicated any large holes to indicate this or would it be smaller fragmented #'s? Any light you could shed would be helpful

Erin,

Based on the current survey results thus far, if any gaps do exist, they are relatively small. Based on the Polishing Room records, I personally do not believe that any serial number gaps exist. That stated, for the Model 06, the last serial number in its on sequence per the Polishing Room serial number records was 685999 (on 3/10/1926). When the Model 06 receiver production was merged with the Model 90 receiver production on 3/11/1926, the serial numbers began with 713200. Therefore, it could be misconstrued that a "gap" exist between serial numbers 686000 - 713199 for the Model 06. From serial number 713200 to the end of production (serial number 854747), there is an intermix of Model 90s and Model 06s (and a small number of Model 62 & 62A) rifles.

Thanks Bert!

One more question if I may...……  What is the highest # you have recorded in the survey so far?  Not the known one from the polishing room, the one you have documented.

854659, a Model 90 22 Short with a 23-inch round barrel.  It sold in the May 2000 Rock Island auction.  Per the PR records, it was serialized July 20th, 1942.

Thanks again Bert!

I found another one, it's been so heavily modified I don't know if the data is any good. The only redeeming factor is the caliber, I don't know if anyone would intentionally change it to a long.

Chuck,

Thanks for your contribution.

 

Erin,

Thanks for the link. I had previously entered it in the survey as a "Long Rifle" so I fixed it thanks to your post.

Interesting; SN 734301 - exactly 500 lower than Chuck's 734801 just two posts before yours. I thought I had a typo in there somewhere.

Thanks,
