That serial is 66600?
The serial list puts it in 1932 so I guess it's not right (somehow)
I had to relook at the photo and i believe it's 63,600 . I could be wrong.

I own a rifle that has a date code "PR' of June of 1924 yet the serial number "517xx" database puts it at the beginning of 1926.

Re: 32 Rem brass score on GB

Pretty cool find, thanks for posting a picture! Finding unused unprimed brass from that era is certainly not a common occurrence. I have 2 unopened boxes of Remington brand unprimed 32 Remington brass, i never dug in to figure when they were made. I had posted them late last year showing them on here.

Re: A question and a lead for someone

Bull

I just looked at a Williams Catalog from 1984 and it shows the FP-SSM and the 5D-SSM as sights that are to work on the 8's & 81"s, it didn't mention the FP-81. I'm not sure that helps much, you know it was before 1984 at least.

Hey Roger B.

The repair date code "OYY3" from my understanding would breakdown as such.
O- July
YY- 1952
3- repair

The stamp below the repair code "your production date code" KY would put it at May of 1930 your rifle was stamped.
