Good day,
Have a Sears model 54 (mfg by Winchester (mod 94)) that came into the shop with a very low serial number. So I couldn't help but wonder if when guns were made for stores or other companies by Winchester, did Winchester use their serial numbering or did they create a serial number listing specifically for that store/company? Will I be able to use the s/n on the rifle when compared to Winchesters dates of manufacture to determine year of creation or will there be a s/n listing for "non-Winchester" Winchesters that I may require the Cody Firearms Museum's assistance to identify this guns age?

Any possible assistance is appreciated.
