In addition to the 00026 I have sent some pics of another of my 37's. This one is #12100 date code ZZ R and has some interesting carving on the stock. John Prince

Vinbyr, I am curious about your serial no 00026. Does this rifle have a barrel band?

Hi guys, I'm the new kid (but a REALLY old kid)... here's my first post! Thank you, Old Man 58, for all your work on this project and this really great thread-- the reason I finally quit lurking and joined RFC. I have been the proud owner for several years now of #04912, which bears the XRR code (Dec. '46). As I'm sure you agree, the 37 is one of the greatest rifles ever produced and offered to the American shooting public, and mine is a superb example of the product and completely original, best I can tell. I have the original peep sights (in a box) while the old boy wears a 24X Redfield 3200 scope which comes in handy for beheading gnats (yeah, right); it also has its 5-round magazine and original SS adapter, which has been in place so long it would probably have to be blasted out of the action. Hope this helps!

Hi McWilliams,
Old man 58 and I started work on this project a while ago. I was out of work at the time, and this helped me develop my typing skills. When I finally got a job I found less time to work on this project, and thankfully Old man 58 has continued. We know that there are model 37's all over the world, and I would be interested in where you are located, and where you acquired your rifle. I ask because I have #04914 documented as being in Argentina!
Thanks, Myles

Hello, Myles. Yes, it was a real hoot for me to read "haiha's" post (#73 on this thread) and learn that his 37-- two numbers higher than mine-- was dated a month later than mine and is now residing in Argentina! I scored mine in a little hole-in-the-wall flea market in Anderson, Indiana in either '93 or '94, I forget which. The guy I bought it from was selling it for the widow of its previous owner, Ben Wheeler, an old timer from this area (maybe some of the rimfire target shooters from around this region might remember him?) whom I had met and talked with some years earlier at a local shooting range-- fine feller. To be honest, a far better shot than I should be the rightful owner of such a jewel, but you remember what Chuck Heston said about HIS rifle: "...From my cold, dead, fingers." LOL!

Thank you Mr. Bill, the receiver serial numbers have been added to the list, just wish we had the barrel date codes as well.
