Hello Mates , Has anyone come up with an approximate S.N. as to when the one piece all aluminum machined handle on the early 308's was discontinued? Regards , John in Pa.

Hi John, can't say for sure since handles are commonly swapped, however, my records to date, indicate somewhere about #060xxx they stopped use in production, or about later 1960. But that is not to say that all 308/309 reels had the aluminum handle threads prior to the above SN. It's possible only some of these came out of the factory with this type of handle.
