Well, can you confirm if the 48 prefix gun is 41 or 45? Model number off the box would help. (From the list above I will guess you have the KRBN-455W model however and yours is 45 Colt (no 45 acp cylinder) :wink: )

The same for the Hunter, is this 41 or 45 and is that a standard Hunter or Bisley? Note those are the only four limited edition hunters that I am aware of unless someone has a 17 Convertible Hunter as I would love to get some idea of what serial numbers would correlate with those.

Thanks!

Both are in .45 LC only.

I have a brace of OM RV's convertibles in both .45 ACP & LC, but you don't want info on them, right?

Thanks! List is updated and no, I hate to think what it would be like to keep track of more then I am trying here already. Some of the numbers are downright confusing (41 Mag data) but only five guns makes it tough to make sense out of.

You might try to figure out who "fuzzi4844" is as they have the brother to the one you own:

They may be very interested :wink:

I am confused, the link was to 37-90025 and you have 37-90026, right?

Oh well, just thought I woulld point out the consecutive had shown up just recently. Perhaps alarming I am starting to memorize serial numbers :shock:
