Check out Bert's summary in post #28 of this thread:

Gentlemen,

Ned Schwing's books on the Winchester Slide-action rifles are superb references to say the least, and are an absolute must for any serious collector. That stated, Ned missed finding the late production serial number records for the Model 90.

The Cody Museum records office has the serialization records for the Model 90 well beyond what Ned published. Specifically, Ned only listed the Model 90 serial number up to the point when the Model 06 was discontinued (March 10th, 1926). On that date, the Model 90 serial range had reached 713199. The Model 06 records ended at serial number 685999 on 3/10/1926 with the written note "Mod. 06. discontinued". In the Model 90 records, the entry on 3/10/1926 reads "Stile Mark discontiunet" meaning the "A" below the serial number on the receiver frame was discontinued. What Ned did not show or mention in his books, is that the serial number range for the Model 90 continued without interruption all the way up to number 846022 on June 6, 1932. This is where regular production of the Model 90 ended. During the run from 713199 - 846022, there were at least a few thousand parts clean-up Model 06 rifles assembled. The exact number is unknown, and will undoubtedly remain a mystery.

From June 7th, 1932 through February 5th, 1933, no new serial numbers were assigned or made. From February 6th, 1933 through early June of 1933, serial numbers reached 846524... these were the first true Model 90 parts clean-up rifles assembled, but the receiver frames were newly manufactured. Some of these later serial numbers could also be Model 06 rifles. Sporadic runs of Model 90 receivers were manufactured and serialized from March 1934 through July 20th 1942, ending with serial number 854745. Undoubtedly, some of them were used to assemble hybrid Model 62/62A rifles. Finally, (after more than 7-years had passed), the final two Model 90 receivers recorded in the factory records were made and serialized (854746, and 854747) on November 23rd, 1949.

I researched and carefully recorded all of the details above in my research notes.

Bert H.
