I would like to start a log of Crosman Town & Country Senior Stock Numbers. As many of you know Crosman kept no records of the number of Town & Country rifles produced. There are also no serial numbers, at least on the majority of these guns. It seems there are 2 different types of Seniors produced.

1. The 1949 thick stock
2. 1950-? Thin stock with through stock safety.

It appears the 1949 thick stocks may have been out-sourced and given they are cut from one piece of wood, they had a number embossed on each side of the cut to match them during manufacturing. See pic below.

The highest has been 1305. If these numbers were not repeated? it could be a proxy for the number produced. If you have one or if you see one in your travels please report to me if you would:

1. The Stock Number, or absence of one
2. The Caliber, 107 108
3. Stock type, does it have a through stock safety?
4. Serial number if one found, one has been reported on the tube.

Thanks,

Current numbers are:

Interesting pattern so far, it seems the rarer rifles may be the thin stocks through safety rather than the 107, though the 107 is slightly rarer so far.  This does probably show the obvious that the model started out with a batch of thick stocks, then toward the end they turned to thin stocks they were now using on other models?  As a collector it does give me modivation to buy a thin stock?  I should want a .177 107 but I just think this massive rifle should be in 22. Lol. But seriously I do like 22 for a pump.

Updated to 23 rifles, interesting the last rifles I have been entering had been mostly 108’s so the 107 being rarer is proving true, but those 107s are out there.  The thick stock number variance looks strange to me, lots of low number then that jump to 1305, just doesn’t seem random?  Look at all the 200’s?

I would like to make a correction on one of my thin stock 107's. Found serial #'s 245377 on the right side front, back of the pivot pin.
Your stock should not only made of walnut.
