Lakey pointed out the markings on two of my .22 IMD's as possibly being special to those exported to USA and New Zealand. I have not seen anything to confirm this one way or the other, perhaps just old stock was being used up? Both IMD's mentioned came from the USA and another I have, an IMD Juvenile (sn S 65724) has nothing stamped on the side lever button. This one was apparently an early import to NZ.
Just to throw something else into the arena on this topic - Garvin's pics in his 'Buying old guns online' comment shows a side lever with the Pat 25723-10 marking below the button on the lever! I have never seen that before, has anyone else?
