22 short, if that is helpful. AC9 on gun barrel.
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Good afternoon.....can you tell me where exactly on the barrel you see that AC mark, and are there any other letters on the barrel?

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

The letters that I need should be on the left side of the barrel near the frame.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That would be the frame end, left side and it is an "AC with a dot (not a 9). I cleaned it with a toothpick. Now trying to see if there is anything within the dot.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The "dot" is an oblong depression with a dot on the right center of the depression. So AC depression with dot within the right center.

I see that you have requested a phone call. I am teaching a class at the moment so I will not be able to call you until after 4 p.m. Is that okay?

No thank you
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Just curious..what did you come up with.for a date of manufacture?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
March 1934. Odd for a .22 short
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

March, 1934 would be correct, second to last year of production. It was offered in 22 short or 22LR. The gun came in different grades too, and some of the different grades can be pretty valuable.
