I was also told by one gentleman that the barrell appeared to be original to him, but again, there is no HP mark. Were there 1924 barrells without these marks?
[QUOTE=JohnnyP;2863459]Serial numbers 7090001 thru 710000 were set aside for the 1924 National Matches. It is not know if any made it to the lines.
I have a Transitional that I found a listing in SRS:
There aretwo entries for 700292 in the SRS database. One from 1924 showing it as a NMpistol. The other from 1933 showing it being sent to SA. Below are thelistings, exactly as recorded on my disc.
700292NM 060924 ENGR RIFLE TEAM
700292 121833 POST ORD OFF FT. DUPONT TO SA
sorry to break any bubbles. I just sold a 1924 transitional barrel. it had the 'k' marking in front of the legs. I understood that the transitional model was the first 10,000 beginning with serial #700000. ?? I, too, was given to believe if a barrel were to be found cost would be about $500 or more depending on condition. I sold mine on Gunbroker auction for $325 because it was well used, but shootable.............
