and can't find the date of production based on the forums data thats been collected. The serial is FU429 and its stamped throughout. it's on the barrel, frame and slide. It looks to be original. I mean it's in decent shape and I paid a pretty decent price (being from mass) for it with 2 10 round mags 2 15 round mags and a couple holsters. I can post some pics later to show the condition but what would something like this be worth since its all still original? Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
