Hi everyone!

Is there any way of knowing how many pistols were made between each suffix letter? I have a 1920 40xxo, that according to Mr. Still's book was probably made in 1925-26.

Each grouping of suffixes were of 10,000 guns.

WW1 was each numbering started over, i.e. first 10,000 then 1a, 2a through 10000a, then 1 b etc., but when the new year started it was 1, 2 up to 10,000.

WW2 era the numbers just continued up through the suffixes, so a little harder and experts should jump in, but an easy answer to you is;


Thanks Ed!
