Not to be contentious, but I think the Value Line pistols are later production than the 915. The 915 was an effort to economize on the 39XX through simpler machining, but, technically speaking, is not a Value Line gun. The Value Line came a few years later and took the conception a step further in machining simplicity and material changes for some smaller, non critical parts.

An advertisement lists the VL as the 908/908S (version of the 3914/3913), 910/910S (VL for the 3904/3906), the 410/410S (VL 4004/4006), and 457/457S (VL 4504/4506). I believe this ad dates from 1996-97. A two page ad that comes from 1993 shows the new 442, 411, and 915. There's also a 1994 single page ad that shows the 915 and its brethren.
