I need some help on a short time project to determine when the various forms of the Winchester company names were used and the associated headstamps.
I realize that there is overlap on the dates, but let’s try to base the dates on catalog information. So, if you have Winchester catalogs, especially for the years 1965-2009, could you please check the address listed and the year. I think I have the changes nailed down pretty good for 1885-1960. It is all the changes after that that I need help on. What year was the metallic ammunition production moved to East Alton from New Haven (1982??)? What years did they use “Winchester Group”? Any other changes or additions to this list would be welcomed.
