56571F40-9D28-4E96-92F5-C240C70BD56C.jpegImage EnlargerMy Winchester 1892, which was made in 1909, has a number 21 and a number 42 stamped faintly on the bottom of the action immediately in front of the lever. Is this common and what does it designate? I have a few reference books and have never seen anything mentioning these markings… thanks

Someone more knowledgeable will correct me if I am wrong but I believe those are inspectors marks,

The photo is blurry, so I can’t make them out clearly. But a number with a dash is a inspection mark and a number with a dot underneath is a assembly mark. These aren’t serial numbers and were used during the manufacturing process.

Sincerely

Maverick
