In going over the records for the Specialty Grade, some have noticed in the Frame column there is an R column stating 235 20 gauge guns made.
Dr. Jim copied this right from the ledgers, and since no one has seen a Regular Frame we were talking on what this might be.
Dr. Jim put this question under the current post "R" Suffix, asking if anyone has an ejector 20 gauge with the "R" suffix on the for-end. I thought some might not see it so re-posted it as a new topic.
Hopefully, with co-operation from readers we might be able to figure out what this meant in the ledgers and also what the "R" suffix means.
As I had stated in the previous post, my brief research of the "R" suffix, it is only on FW frames and I believe only on 20 gauge guns from what I have seen.
Since this "R" suffix seems to be on for-ends of guns with the Curtis for-end release, and since ejector guns have the roller release latch and not the Curtis, I am thinking this means something else.
If anyone can add to this, it would be appreciated.
