I did not want to interupt that poast with this, so a
while looking at the print, I was amazed at the small changes made over time.
Here are some examples of what type of information is available.
16 gauge print dated 9/7/21 for Whitworth barrels
changes listed:#350 2/7/31 Bore changed from .614" to .624"
Change #411 5/24/32 watertable changed from 2.23/32" to 2.650
barrel length changed from 32 1/4" to 32.093" 30.093"
print shows chamber length changes hand writen in, no date of change listed.
print dated 9/7/21 but latest change on print was 5/24/32
all sourced from print:
this print shows chamber length with no hand writen changes shown on chamber.
In many cases several of the same prints are listed, but not all have changes writen in.
Some look to be file copys with no hand writen notations on them.
The prints of interest to me, are what appear to be working drawings that were used in production.
I feel that many of these prints show a time line of changes, in the evolution of the L.C. Smith.
What I was wondering was what changes if any, were made that no time frame is known?
Its kind of like an Easter egg hunt lol.
Any sugestions of things to look for?
Happy Easter to all
