year of manufacture??


Recommended Posts

Hi 20pat,


Welcome to the forum and Merry Christmas!


Sorry, I cannot answer the question about the chokes, I'm sure that someone else will be able to give you an answer.


With regard to the date of manufacture, I'm sure that it's been on here before at some time, but Italian guns are marked with a year of proof code. From the mid-seventies this has been a two letter code within a square.


2000 = BN; 2001 = BP; 2002 = BS; 2003 = BT; 2004 = BU;2005 = BZ; 2006 = CA;

2007 = CB; 2008 = CC etc., etc.


Also, if you dismantle your gun at some time, you may see date codes (circular) moulded into some of the plastic components. They don't say when the gun was made, only when that individual moulding was made.
