Pictures of a Sniper 1 with a serial under 10?

Does anyone have pictures of a Sniper 1 with a serial under ten? What about 15?
I am specifically interested in seeing the stamping of the serial and whether there is an "R" or "WGP" stamped before or after the serial number.
Thanks,
-Dan

I think I can get you a picture, but if I recall correctly, the one I have seen, have just the serial number and nothing else.

I've seen the "R", I'll have to scour for some images... Should have some.

I have the sniper 1 with the "62" stamped afterwards, and I would love to know someday actually how many of the sniper 1's actually have the "62" stamp in them.

Great, thanks Shane! Did this gun use a reversible feedneck or a welded on feedneck? Was it an old rental at SC Village? Does it have WGP stamped anywhere on the body or any rental numbers engraved?
Would love to see it.

On the 62 caliber snipers, The 62 is in front of the serial isn't it Carter? I think that's how mine are stamped.
I had assumed that 62 caliber snipers were a separate serial line. But I think I had thought this because they used some later parts such as the later frames that were commonly used on Sniper 1s with post 1K serial numbers.

But thinking about this they could have just been stamped with 62 infront of the standard serial and assembled later than the other sniper 1s.
Thanks guys!

Sorry for the bad cell phone camera pictures... Just did it quickly for you. I wanted to think they were a different run of numbers (62 caliber), but believe they just stamped it on the standard serial number when they put one out. So really, there's no telling how few they actually made.

My buddy is getting pics of what he has. Here is some info that He/We gathered from Budd himself.

"62" guns were 62 cal. They were their own run of numbers. Bud said there were like 250 made..I think. "R" guns were rentals. I've never seen one with "WGP near the s/n. My old one have "WGP" on the back of the gun, and I believe one of my buddys also."


I do recall asking Budd about the 62cal guns. They were made from out of spec bodies that had the feedneck holes machined wrong. The machine kept moving the hole farther and farther out of spec, so each barrel had to be made specifically for that body. I bought a 62 cal body that had been converted to a cocker, and it never fed right. Found out that the feedneck hole was not centered properly, which prompted me to ask Budd about it.

I think the low number one Mark has is a reversible feed neck model.
