I'm trying to find more information about Merrill carbines, specifically if anyone can tell me the serial number where the 2nd models began.
Can anyone out there refer me to a forum, or website where I might get some help?

Thanks!

The information you seek will not be readily found online, it will be in books. It has been a long time since I have read Reilly's United States Military Small Arms 1816-1865, but there is good info about the Merrill carbine in there... the bad part is that the book is out of print. I seriously doubt that you will find an answer as to what the s/n transition to second model was. A total of less than 17,500 Merrills of all types were produced. What shape is your First Model in? It doesn't look bad from the photo you posted.
