This may be a DA question already answered in here somewhere, but is there any way of establisging 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 mbuilt 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.
Gringo, send a very polite e-mail to email@example.com requesting the build or ship date for the M1A serial numbers you provide them. Lexi or Brandy will answer you by e-mail in short order. That is not a dumb question. :D
Thanks to Bill Ricca's thread on The Firing Line Forun, I came across this thread. It's Sunday afternoon, so I can't contact SA right now, but looking at Different's 12/19/04 post, I can place my Standard M1A (s/n 0622xx) to the first half of 1991.
