I got this number ...
There were approximately @ 3,150,000 of these rifles made from May 1, 1887 to December 1, 1904, of which approximately 1,000,000 were made by MA C, 1,600,000 made by MA S and 550,000 made by MA T. During the war 217,000 were made which would bring the total to 3,367,000. I also understood that 300,000 spare parts were bieng held in reserve in 1914 for any losses in the field and that it was some of these that MA T used to make 217,000 during the war with.
Alamas is correct ... the only order we know about is the initial order of 30,000 of April 1st of 1887, we have tried to piece together the numbers made during those years based upon examples from collectors and such.
