think I have a spruce gun. serial # is 8457XX so it falls between known numbers. no "period between or after the "US". looks in a little better shape than the one for sale on the collector web sited elsewhere on this forum. What else can I look for to better help identify what I have?

Thanks in aDvance

This should have been posted as a separate topic, but no matter, we will see what we can do to assist you.

The first thing to do is post (or send me) several clear close-up pictures of all the stamped markings on the receiver frame. Without being able to see the gun, it is not possible to positively ID it as a Spruce Gun.

Additonally, Rick Hill and myself are still researching and traking down surviving specimens, and would really appreciate knowing what the complete serial number on your gun is. If you are not comfortable posting it here, please contact me at Win1885@msn.com

Having been a collector since 1960, I would say I have a desent working knowledge of the following. 1) Pre-War thru War-Time Walther pistols. (P-38, PP’s and PPK’s) 2)Colt Percussion and 1st. gen. SAA revolvers. 3) Early Single Action Smith & Wesson revolvers. Last but certainly not least, Winchester Models of 1866 and 1873. More 1873’s than 1866"s. 8)

I can certainly offer opinions on my passions: Model 1890/90 and the Model 62/62A. Expert? IMHO, that’s an overused and well abused term.
