Serial number idm

In 1919 Winchester abandoned numbering models by the year of introduction and assigned two-digit numbers, sequential beginning with 51 for rifles. Older guns still in production had their model numbers truncated, e.g. the Model 1912 shotgun became the Model 12. There was one exception: the unconventional 'Thumb Trigger' rifle, which was not previously numbered, was given the designation 99.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ abFirst produced in 1904, this rifle was initially marketed simply as the 'Thumb Trigger' until February 1919, when it was assigned the number 99 for the year the design was patented. Winchester simultaneously dropped the initial 2 digits from all year-numbered models for advertising reasons, so the preceding '18' was omitted from the outset. Model 99s were never actually marked as such; the designation was used only in sales literature. Houze, p. 77 & p. 94.
  2. ^ abThe model number 55 was used twice; the two rifles were entirely dissimilar and were not produced concurrently.
  3. ^66 was not used, to avoid confusion with the Model 1866
  4. ^ abWinchester added the suffix '7' to the Model 67 and 69 when equipped with telescopic sights and no provisions for iron sights. These rifles, although seemingly out of numeric sequence, can be accurately described as variants rather than separate models.
  5. ^73 was not used, to avoid confusion with the Model 1873

I'm curious how old it is. It is a .308 by the way... Serial Number is H 240596 H 204596
I was over visiting my mom, and she comes out of the spare bedroom with a padded rifle case in her arms & hands it to me. I'm like, 'what's that?
'Open it and see' she says...
'It's Dad's Winchester .308! The one that was always in his closet, separate from his other rifles.' I exclaimed. 'Yes it is, and I want you to have it.' she says back to me.
She asked me if I remembered when he & I fired it in our back yard when I was like ten. 'Of course I do, how could I forget' I said ... 'It was never fired again.' she told me.
She didn't know why, but said that he just liked to keep it aside and that he never hunted with it. So it's had only those 4rds through it.
The two rounds that he shot and the two that I shot... It is perfect & It looks brand new.
So after we talked about it, I said, 'I can't believe you still have this mom. I forgot all about it.' She says, 'I know, and I also know how much it would mean for you to have it....'
My eyes start welling up.... My Dad passed away November 4th, 1996. He was not my biological Father, but he was My Dad ... because he raised me from 4yrs old. And he taught me a lot about being a man.
So I now have my Dad's .308 Winchester Model 88 lever action rifle, all original with a beautiful wooden stock, the 4rd magazine, etc.
And the front site has a hood that you can remove and the rear sight folds down forward, but it is more in the middle of the barrel than towards the rear. Never scoped either
It's really an awesome rifle. I always admired it. And one thing I remember from shooting it those two times with my Dad, is that it had one heck of a kick - lol - I was 10 It was cool...
A quick story behind the rifle, that my mom also shared with me... Is that when my Dad used to belong to the Knights of Columbus, and there was a .25 cent raffle for this rifle....
He bought one ticket. And that is how he acquired it. Maybe that is why he never used it...
Thanks all
