It is still ongoing, and please start with the serial number on each gun.

S/N 1409389 is new entry for the survey.  It was manufactured in early January 1947.

S/N 1442936 was already documented in the survey.  It was manufactured in July 1947.

The current number of Flat-bands in the survey is now 2,431.

Thanks for participating in the survey.

Very interesting… your Flat-band Carbine is earliest known serial number found with a Type 3 receiver frame!  Based on the information I have recorded in the survey thus far, the Type 3 receiver frames were introduced very near serial number 1473000 (January 1948).  Your serial number indicates that it was manufactured in August or September of 1947.

Can you please send me a pictures of the top of the receiver looking down on at the hammer and the magazine tube end cap?

I just looked at it again and it’s really a Type 2.  Had the stock off so was hard to tell by glance.
