Re: M1884 Serial Number

Hello and good afternoon, Greg:

In checking all (4 Volumes of the SRS "SERIAL NUMBERS OF U.S. MARTIAL ARMS" I found the following serial numbers - - some close, but none were your precise serial number 333494. In all (4) cases the numbers were listed as being Model 1884 Service Rifles (Code "84R"):


333426 Date of Record: 1898 Company-H, 1st Iowa Volunteer Infantry


333498 Date of Record: 1898 Company-L, 1st Arkansas Volunteer Infantry


333490 Date of Record: 08-01-1894 Company-F, 22nd Infantry


333519 Date of Record: 09-12-1886 Company-E, 22nd Infantry

So your serial number in question 333494 is right midway between 333490 and 333498.

Best regards,
