I would have expected some sort of marking to confirm export/import as well. Hong Kong did not return to Chinese rule until 1997, so my pistol (manufactured 1992) would have preceded that by a good bit. I tried calling S&W but I was referred to the S&W Historical Foundation. I hate to pay $100 for a letter that simply confirms the pistol was part of an overrun that was sold off to a distributor here in the US.
