Default Age range anticipated.....

Hello all...my first post here.
I am curious as to the expected age/date range of the items we expect to see here. Does older mean rarer and more desirable? How new could one of these be...when did the most recent production run end?
Thanks.
Mike

Hello Trooper, I'm new in these parts too. The American Rifleman article from May had a picture of a crate close-up enough to see the serial numbers stenciled on the crate. Since some to the serial number ranges seem to overlap with the different manufacturers some of these numbers are a SWAG.

Out of the 21 S/Ns I could see it looked like 10 Remington Rands, 9 Colts and 2 Ithacas. Three were 1942, six were 1943, six 1944, five 1945, and one 1912 Colt.

This sample seems like a good representation of the production numbers, but that's 21 of 8K. We are waiting (not patiently, but waiting) to see what the remaining 7,979 have in store.

If I'm not mistaken, the "youngest" one would be from 1945. I thought I had read somewhere that that was the last year of production for Uncle Sam.

The frames will be 1945 or before. However, remember these pistols have been maintained since then by depots and unit armorers. All other parts may be commercial or USGI.

DoD was in 1952.
