Mitchell 340 – 1967-1974 = 92,813 Units
Mitchell 341 – No Records This Model Was Ever Made

 

Designed after the Mitchell round bodied series 304, 304S and 314; the 340 series was first introduced in France in 1967 as the M34. Not much is known about this reel due to the lack of records and advertising in any country we’ve tried. We do know the Mitchell 340 and the Mitchell 304S were released very close to the same time, circa 1968.


In the late 1960s Mitchell started making the Garcia Mitchell 340 and the Mitchell 340 for sale in Europe. The Garcia Mitchell 340 pictured below is in the original box with matching serial number 0039776 dating this reel made in the early 1970s.


The Mitchell 340 and the Garcia Mitchell 340 are the only two versions that were painted black. Other European versions were painted a very dark green and had a green handle knob with various names such as the ARCA M34 as shown below. Others such as the Balzer M34 and Prisu 4 will be added at a later date.
