FS Benelli H20 LEO BNIB

Looks like you have an actual NP3 plated M4 instead of the Cerakote model. An important distinction for potential buyers. I don’t believe the factory is making anymore with NP3.

Thanks, can you let me know why you think it is NP3 plated, not Cerakote? That would be good news, to be sure. I just bought it a month or so ago from a small dealer in Iowa, so maybe it is one of the older ones and was just NIB from those days?

 

Or, let me ask this, is there a way I can calculate the "born on" date from the serial number?

So.. apparently nobody here knows that the dating system is after 2008. That's a bit surprising.

The "A" series of dating the Benelli's used 16 second letters in their codes, "B" series used 15 second letters in the codes, skipping some letters (highlighted) that have also been skipped to date in the "C" series of date coding. The "CS" would be a 2017 mfg. date code if the C series is going to follow the template of the B series coding.
