Some of the CO -300's have bit more range............and those are the aircraft for the most part getting the winglets, they have rafts and the low end IFE's! Range.....gosh, like to say 2,200 NM but not sure of that, just a guess.
Any views shared are strictly my own and do not a represent those of any former employer.

Max cruising speed 912km/h (492kt), economical cruising speed 795km/h (430kt). Standard range with max passengers 2815km (1520nm), higher gross weight option range with max passengers 4444km (2400nm).
"There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots."
Note that with maximum fuel and no payload, the -300 and -500 have almost identical range (with equivalent fuel capacity option), and the -400 range is a couple of hundred of miles less. All 3 models have 3 optional fuel capacities.

I know the Braathens SAFE (now part of SAS, sadly) B737-500 flew 125 pax nonstop Oslo-Canary islands for years. That's a 5h45min flight stretching 4,100km and they were great flights with excellent inflight service. How I miss those days...
The Braathens B737-400 could reach the Mediterranean destinations from Oslo with 156 pax.

737-300 does Manchester-Las Palmas-Manchester non stop every Saturday, which is a 1700nm leg. Range is pretty good on the 300, the 400 does have range limitations when full. A particular airline flying Cyprus-UK a few years ago with the 400 was restricted with a full load.
