Thank you for using Blue Book, and Just Answer!

Looks like Bill has stepped away - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.

To determine the age, I need to you look on the left side of the barrel near the frame. There should be a two or three letter alphabetic code, like this: "RYY" or "KP".

Do you have access to the gun to get that code?
