John & Simon–As one of the authors of the Remington Box Dating Project, I can provide the answers to your questions. Randy Heeden did the Rifle part of the Box Dating Project. I did the Pistol & Revolver Part. Originally it was supposed to be all one article, but Randy, having fewer box types to work on for Rifle and using his own collection of .30-40 Krag, got his part done before I finished the Pistol & Revolver part because I collect only .45 Colt boxes and needed to solicit scans from other collectors (BIG thanks to John Moss for most of the needed SMOKELESS POWDER box styles). After Randy completed his part, he submitted it to John S. for posting. A copy was also sent to me for proofing, changes, etc. since I have the catalog resources that Randy did not have to fine tune the dates of the box types. John S. went ahead and put the Rifle part up so Randy and I could have easy access without needing to send the file back and forth. However, since some changes were needed, John S. has to this point only made it accessible to a restricted list of people until the changes can be made. Since it was posted, John S, has been VERY busy and has not had time to make the changes. It will be at least another month before it will be available to all the members.
Meanwhile, my part of the project is still not complete. It IS complete for the Smokeless Powder boxes, I DESPERATELY need scans of ANY BLACK POWDER Revolver boxes from 1911 to 1942. If you have any, PLEASE contact me. The Smokeless part of the Pistol boxes has been sent to John S. (about 30 days ago) but John S. has not had the time to post it. If I EVER get the required scans of the Black Powder Revolver boxes, they will be added in later.
