That is the reason my interest was in the early rifles, before the standard cataloging. I decided I couldn’t keep up trying to buy one of every new thing someone would come up with! The ones I did buy was because I wanted to own them to shoot. I recognize a difference between the Commeratives Lyman was the first I can think of and the Distributor exclusives.
I haven’t felt that commeratives were as “collectable”, unless that is what you want to collect. It’s a big field too.

Army Ordnance Serial Number Assignments Understanding Serial Numbers – Understanding Dates of Manufacture Serial number blocks were assigned by the Ordnance Department on an as needed basis, generally in response to the awarding of a contract to a given manufacturer. The serial number was placed on the carbine receiver during the manufacturing process of the receiver, not when the carbine was finally assembled.
The decision for which receivers would be used for the U. Carbine Models M1, M1A1, or M2 were made well after the receiver was completed as all of these models used the same receiver. Given the high volume production, receivers were generally assembled as part of a carbine within a few months after the receiver was serial numbered.
However, dating a carbine by it’s serial number alone is difficult and not always accurate given the circumstances inherent with manufacturing and the logistics situation during the time the carbines were manufactured. A few of the manufacturers at various times used subcontractors to manufacture their receivers. Serial numbered receivers that failed to pass inspection were set aside as rejects if the defect s could not be brought up to minimum standards.
As solutions to old problems were learned, some of the same receivers were brought back online and completed i. Winchester receivers initially rejected because of an off spec deep hole drilled for the recoil spring and guide, later recovered and altered to use a detachable main spring housing. If a receiver was scrapped and not used, it’s serial number may or may not have been reused. No documentation has been found that indicates the dates serial numbers were placed on the receivers.
