Bert,

Do you have a survey going for the Model 94 N&W Railway carbines?

Thanks,

Al

Al,

I do not have a separate survey for them, but they are included in my all-encompassing survey.  Thus far I have (3) of them identified.  What is the S/N on the one you have pictured?

That is number 3 of 3 in my survey;

937282, 937621, and 937686.  I have a note in my survey that 937282 was 1 of 10 in the same crate, and I suspect that all three I have documented were in the same crate.

Bert,

I have 937282 with the crate.

I attached a .pdf. Not sure if it worked.

It worked.

There is a problem with that hang tag for S/N 937282… per the Winchester PR records, serial number “937282” was applied (stamped) on the receiver frame on January 30th, 1922… almost 7 full years after the date on that tag!  Because I am 100% certain that the PR records are accurate, it leads me to believe that the tag is highly questionable.

Bert,

The tag has the same serial number (gun number) on it as the carbine, and it appears that the gun number and date issued were written by the same person. Could it be that the date issued 3/15 means March 15th? 

Thanks,

Al

That is a plausible explanation, though an odd way to record a date.
