Bill, I've asked that the dates provided be from the factory headspace tag in the box or the shipped date available from SA, Inc. Customer Service. The dates are tracking very well as far as I can see with perhaps one or two.
This may be a DA question already answered in here somewhere, but is there any way of establishing the build date of your rifle without the paperwork? Is is proofed somewhere tthat would give you an indication? Or is the whole intent of the data base to find enough guys with paperwork to help establish some SN ranges?...reason I ask is I have two M1A's...I have no paperwork with either, but the original owner told me that my 1229xx was built in Dec 99. I am not sure how he arrivced at that conclusion. That appears to fall into the data base window which is good. My new one is SN 0591xx which seems to put it into a July 1990 window. If I can help this out in any way I'd like to.
