1873 Series 1, 2 & 3 question
« on: October 29, 2022, 11:04:11 AM »
Hi there can anyone help me with either the dates or serial numbers when the 1872 moved from series one to series 2 and the series three. I am trying to find what series a 73 with the Serial number 208XXX also does the letter after a serial number have a meaning
Thank You

Don't know exact numbers but yours will be a 3rd model with that serial number. They stopped the second model much earlier than that. I have some of all three models and the dust covers and the screwed on rail is the quickest easy way to tell them apart.

Your rifle was built in 1886.  According to the Madis book, all 73's over SN 90000 are 3d Model.
