144LSB serial number survey
 
This survey is intended to gather Serial Number information on these rifles. In addition to the SN we are looking for type of wood, Peg information and notes. The notes are most important and should include but not limited to date acquired, hand tag information especially dates, sights if nonstandard and any information you feel is noteworthy. I will keep the SN's in descending order oldest to newest as follows:

SN, Peg/s, wood type, notes

No SN, both, Walnut, Manufactured between 1966 and early 1967
507688, both, Walnut, no info
747268, 1 red, Birch, no info
8893??, 1 red, Walnut, no sights
1104367, 1 red, Walnut, no info
1390665, 1 red, Walnut, no info
1399125, 1 red, Walnut, no info

Another member asked me for copies of the small brochure that came with my LSB, so I thought I would provide it for all the other interested members,too:

Mine doesn't have a SN. Shouldn't it? They were made after 1968. Either it doesn't or I'm getting dumber.

Surely you jest? I'm sure you know that the first few made had no serial numbers and are by far the most rare LSB's made. LSB production began just prior to the Gun Control Act of Oct 22, 1968 and therefor do not have serial numbers. Vic has never seen one but he told me he was sure they exist. Now we know....our first real break through. Please post some pictures and I'll get it on the list. WOW! Regards, Rick.

1399125 1 reg peg May be Walnut, but pretty sure it is Beech... No rear sight when purchased....
