What I'll need you to do is check the left side of the barrel for a 2-3 letter code.

Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 months ago

It should be just in front of the receiver.

I do not have any letter code on the side of the barrel.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 months ago

Ok, if there is no letter code, then the closest we can get to a manufacture year would be to give you a range,since the serial numbers don't actually correspond to manufacture dates.....

The range would be 1909 to 1921.

After 1921, the model 12 used the 2 letter codes on the barrel

Good morning! I see that this question is still open on my list and that you have not yet completed a positive rating (with the stars, near the top). When you complete that positive rating for my work, the question will then close....or did you need some other info first?
