I am looking at a Winchester model 94 takedown 146139 in 32 WS and would like to know the first years that 32 WS were produced
The John Hawk survey list the first 1894 rifle in 32 WS is s/n 107731 received in the warehouse 10/5/01, shipped 10/16/01. This was the first by date. The first carbine was s/n 142899 5/10/02.
The first rifle by s/n was 10675, 8/23/02. T/R

Here are the first two I have in my short rifle survey. I should note that 118912 had a note in the survey stating “changed to 32 WS” so it likely was returned soon after purchase to be rechambered for the new “Special” cartridge. Maybe by Steve004’s great, great grandfather.
