To be honest..... I'm not sure what you are asking here.........

-You are willing to take serials posted here and put them into the CMP thread?
-You are looking for someone here with the Books to look and see how it differs from your on-line version?

Or you want to start the same type thread here, using your SRS copies?

S/N# of service weapons?  Or how does this work?

In any case, here's a couple that might fit the bill, though I already looked them up online for their production blocks, and already know some of the post war history of the shorter one.

Thanks for trying those. I really appreciate it. Here's a Rem 1903 if you don't mind 3035645.
Also, would a US built (Savage) Enfield show up on your list?

Sorry I only saw this just now.  I have the four books, which includes the 1999 edition of vol. 4.  Regarding the differences between the electronic info and books, this is the explanation given over at the CMP: http://forums.thecmp.org/showpost.php?p=1708617&postcount=1834

Happy to look up some guns as time allows.  In return, might I ask a favor from the hive?  I'm on the hunt for an SRS hit trapdoor 1884 cadet rifle between 565,354 and 566,699, as a bunch of those were issued to my alma mater, the Baylor Cadets.  I've run across several within that range, but haven't found an actual direct hit yet for sale, and with the SRS a miss is as good as a mile - even worse, given my understanding of the way the records were made.  But a heads up on anything within that range would be tremendously appreciated!

Would any of the numbers that I posted above show up or did TOTHEMAX's database cover it?  

Here's a 1911 to check on; It's a Rem #2063769

No hits on the M1s, 1903, or 1911, sorry.

Very early Springfield, was reimported at some point in the mid 80"s by "Blue Sky" Arlington Va. No clue where it was reimported from.

Any info you can find would be greatly appreciated.

I have found conflicting info with some indicating it may have originally been a Gas Trap gun.

While this document reveals the number of gas trap rifles originally made, there are still some questions regarding the serial number range for these rifles. For example, it is known that some gas port rifles assembled in mid-1941 were in the 40,000 serial number range, and serial numbers as high as the 51,500 range have been reported by credible sources as original gas trap rifles.

This overlap in serial numbers between gas trap and gas port M1 rifles during this period was a case of the Ordnance Dept. using up gas trap parts still on hand in order to put as many M1 rifles into the hands of troops as possible, even if they weren’t of the latest design.
