First half of 1923, April plus/minus a month most likely. One digit too many, though. If the double-4 is the mistake, then a bit earlier.

I'm curious. Does this gun say Made in U.S.A. on the right side of the frame, just below the front of the cylinder and ahead of the trigger guard? I suspect not, but it is right on the cusp of that being added.

Thanks.

Interesting. Thanks. That stamp was implemented in about May, 1922.
