I am new to this site and saw a survey about flatbands.  I have a 94' 25-35 flatband serial #1442614.  Hopes this helps in the survey.  Thanks

Thank you... that is a new serial number for the survey.  It should have a type-2 receiver frame, and a serrated hammer.  The barrel date (if you check it) should be "47".

I'm still learning what is a type-2 receiver frame look like or is differentiated?  I would guess the barrel date is on bottom side of barrel.

Based on the fact that it was manufactured in 1947, it is a type 2 receiver frame.  The difference between a type 2 and a type 3 is at the transition from the upper tang to the receiver frame.  The type 2 has an approximate 45-degree angle, whereas the type 3 is much sharper with nearly a 90-degree transition (see the pictures below).

To All,

Will gladly add, please don't forget about my Reloading Tools Survey! It maybe the "redheaded stepchild" of surveys, but I'm still at it!

Believe it or not, it seems I'm still learning something new about them every other day.

A big thanks to all you gentleman that have helped with it thus far.

Sincerely,

Brady Henderson

What specifically are you looking for? I have not (yet) published any information from that survey.

Bert are there any 3/4 mag 86’s in your survey. Madl & Pirkle note 169 known in their research, but that number is 15+ yrs old & wondering if any others showed up in your more recent ongoing survey.

Yes there are.  In the 146000 - 159999 serial range, Mark and I have documented just (4) with a ¾ length magazine, of which (2) of them are in the "missing serial number range".

Thanks Bert. With these low numbers for 3/4 mag 86’s, would you classify them as uncommon, rare, very rare?

I would classify them as "moderately rare" or "uncommon".

Thanks Bert. I personally like to acquire the rare & uncommon guns. I find them more in “my” price range(than high condition ones) & actually harder to find keeping the chase alive.

Agreed, I have a few myself. It’s rewarding to spot the variations many collectors miss...sometimes even financially.

Hello everyone. I noticed no one had any survey of 1866's so I thought I would see what info we could all gather. As you all know records or sparse as are any special features other than engraving so I thought I would give it a try. Since the engraving is an entire issue itself I think I will stick to barrel lengths. If you want to note half mags or half rounds I will collect them as well along ith if they have fancy or deluxe wood. Please try note where the gun was observed (gunshow, auction, internet, personal collection if possible) Pics or links would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to send me pm here or email me at nanzca@yahoo.com Thanks for any input.
