Lever Name Models

Fourth design models evolving from the lever letter series designs with slight changes. This series followed the precedent of naming the models instead of utilizing letters set by the Olympic (G-O). The up scale models, Supermatic and Olympic, incorporated a rib dovetailed to the top of the barrel and a dovetail slot on the bottom of the barrel for mounting balance weights. This series continued the breach face shrouded by the slide. Adjustable sight models continued to use the Davis sight. This series produced 1951 to 1953. The serial number ranges are best estimates as of the revision date.
