Recently acquired Browning 22 pump SN #32294

Came across this recently and suspect it's either late 1929 but likely 1930 or possibly very earlier 1931...

Was a trapper's gun up in northern Alberta who traded it for cash at the old fur trading post in town at the time. Never came back for it. Purchased by a relative probably around 1946-47. Hasn't been shot in at least 50 years but was well used prior as many nicks and marks on the wood which other wise is in good shape. Any agreement on the date?

First post new guy...

Welcome Timbah and Golonka!
According to previous posts based on Eastman's book, which may or may not be exact (I doubt anyone knows for sure), your rifle Timbah was made in early '20s, while yours Golonka, was indeed made about 1930-31.
These are fine little rifles. Let us know how they shoot.

Matt Eastman's estimate is useless, he simply took the number of rifles and divided it by the numbers of years of production.

17xxx is mid 1920's or earlier and 32xxx is not far beyond. The entire first half of production up to about 68xxx was produced prior to 1935.

G'day from Australia. I just received a nice FN trombone. It has a serial number around 13500 and has the square tang...... has a repaired stock and missing the front sight blade. Looks like it has been well looked after. Any ideas on a date? Any help much appreciated. Thanks Will

With all due respect, read the posts and you'll get an idea.Probably mid 1920s. Square tang guns were known to crack their stocks, hence the change to round tang later in production.

First or second year most likely, so 1922 or 1923.
