Would you have a year for that ?
Looks to be a ship date of some time in 1964-1965 for your buddy's gun.

Thanks very much.

Your 686 probably shipped in the 1984-1985 time frame.

Your 629 probably shipped in 1992. The 4th SCSW doesn't show the BNC serial, but it shows BNA, BNB, BND and so forth.

I don't see a BNR serial number listed in the SCSW, but other BN serials are listed in 1992 and 1993, so I would guess it shipped some time in one of those 2 years.

If someone has a chance: I have 2 686s, CDY5xxx and CEB5xxx. I think they're both either 1999 or 2000 but would like to confirm.

If someone can take the time to find the date of delivery on a 640-1 (I believe from the mid 90's) serial number is BSW3XXX.

Thank you!

I'm out here at work and away from my 4th edition SCSW, but the 3rd edition shows the CDY as Feb 2000 and the CEB as April 2000.

I didn't find an ACM serial in my 4th SCSW, but they show other AC serials from 1983 to 1986. They show a bunch in 1983, including ACL and ACP, so my best guess would be 1983 for your ACM serial number.

The 4th SCSW doesn't show a BSW serial code but does show a BSA for 1994 and several BS serials in 1995. So best guess for me would be around 1995 or maybe 1996. Sorry I can't get closer than that.

Hello. Can you find some information about 6" 686 with serial abs4224 please? Guy who is selling it says it should be made in 1984. Can you tell me if it is right and what dash version is it? Thanks a lot.

The 4th SCSW shows the N900000 serials were shipped in the 1982-1986 time frame. Sorry I can't get it closer than that.

The 4th SCSW shows a whole bunch of AB serials, but not ABS. But most of the serials starting with AB shipped in 1983 with some shipping in 1984.
