The purpose of this survey is to narrow down when Winchester went from CC on the hammers and levers to just blue. If you have a Winchester rifle or carbine that falls between s/n 535,000 and 800,000, 1912 through 1915 and would supply the s/n ( just the first 3 digits if you don’t want to give out the whole s/n ) and whether the hammer and lever are CC or blued it would be of great help.

This is just to give a quick review of the data collected so far. The data shown is from s/n 535451 = 1912 to s/n 792252 = 1915. I have data to s/n 881755 = 1918 but nothing has changed so just showing a narrower range where there was a change. I will continue to record guns as I come across them.
