Default Italian Garands made 11,000 of each. Proof finally

I have shown in the past one stock that was in the 10,000 range since there has always been a false rumor that the Italian BMR and PB never hit 10,000 I also have shown that they but made consecutive numbers and were not contracted half of the numbers each. I handle about 50 more stocks today from a collector many new but I am not at liberty to say. Here are some late stocks. Rick B

Beretta produced rifles to the customer’s order. The customer country specified the serial number range.

This may be proof that BMR produced stocks beyond 10,000, but where are the receivers? We need to see receiver serials with the Danish crown to know if the Danish contract was beyond 10,000, do we not? Or some kind of record, either Italian shipping or Danish acceptance? It is true that beretta would make a rifle with your grand father's image on it. Breda was more of the National armory. We need to see the matching receivers for these stocks, I think, to make a determination. Jim Thompson may have some input on this.

Where are the receivers? I have them. I have several Breda receivers with serial numbers higher than 10,000

The Danish contact began at serial number 1. I have BMR 9 and PB 7.

How many did the contract with the Danes state, or do we know? And were they a consecutive block with no breaks?

A question that comes to mind are the scrapped receivers. What percentage were scrap? How would that impact the highest range of serials?

I don't know. But these are thoughts that could determine range as well as the what BRMPCF50 stated.

I always get a kick out of showing something and people still want to argue. I was collecting the Italian rifles in the 90's when no one wanted one let alone even knew they existed. I used to pay $350.00 for a complete rifle. Then all of the sudden everyone wanted one 5 years ago and all the experts come out. Rick B
