Hey guys,

I am contemplating a purchase on a 1897. 

Its an E series take down in the 875,XXX range. 

Ive noticed quite a variation in the DOM depending on source…is this a 1931 or 1940 shotgun?

 

thanks…Todd

Todd,

We ask that complete serial numbers be provided. A model “97” in the 875000 – 875999 range is a December 1931 or a January 1932 production gun (depending on what the last three digits of the serial number are).

Bert,

 

Thank you so much. I couldnt remember the last three digits but I figured you could get me close. The shotgun is in a Local shop and Im returning to look at it more closely in the morning.

 

thank you for your help…Todd
