yeah 1941 production in 30-30
Mmm my bad of course receiver too long for handgun caliber it's a Mod. 36. Nice piece.
I found this..
The first four years of the Model 1936 the guns were identical in every aspect. In 1937, they changed the name of the Model 1936 to "Model 36;" however, that would be the only change. There were no changes made to the gun internally or cosmetically. Then in 1941, the flute was taken out of the buttstock, a different style butt plate was added, the main spring went from a leaf type to a coil type; and the forearm was changed from the beavertail style to a perchbelly style. 1941 was also the last year for the case colored receiver, the receivers were all blued after this.
In 1946, the marking on the upper tang was eliminated, and Model 36 was added to the barrel markings. As I stated before, the receivers were now blued. The production of the Model 36 continued through 1947, with a slight carryover into the early part of 1948. In June of 1948, the model was changed. The receiver was re-designed, with the square bolt now changed to a round bolt; hence the beginning of the model 336.
Close but no cigar.The first variation 1936 made in 1936 was exactly the same on the inside using flat springs as the 1893 did.In 1937 the second variation changed to coil springs.Of course from the outside they appeared the same.Also the original 1936 did not have a Letter prefix in the serial number.
