The end date I used was the discontinuation of the model 57 in .22 short. I will revise the chart to indicate your 1930 date which seems more likely.

Thanks for the input!

Regards,
JWA,
Your info could be correct for the 22 short. I do not have blueprints for the short magazine. At least I have not found them yet.
