I have acquired a Colt 1911 38 Super with no serial number.

Customer Question
I have acquired a...

I have acquired a Colt 1911 38 Super with no serial number. I checked with our Secret Service, who in turn checked with ATF and was told if the firearm was manufactured prior to 1968, no serial # is required. How can I identify the year, if I don't have a serial # to reference?

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Is there anything else the Gunsmith should be aware of?

No nothing I can think of. Thanks

OK, I know that the pistol was manufactured post 1968. Can I supply you with any features, to help identify a possible mfg date.
