Default " A Month Year " Rebuild mark

I'm seeing quite a few of these coming out in the new release.

Where it's:

"A 11 80" for example.

I think many are curious what the "A" stands for. I know I am.

If anyone has one of these pistols, give me the full serial number and I will have it traced and see if we can get a answer of what the "A" stands for.

Steve

Steve, had you seen the posts, with pictures of these?

I would say there are probably 3 or 4 (plus a separate thread on these markings) that show the full serial number, but I might be wrong...

I didn't want to take anyone's serial without their permission.

But whoever would be so willing to provide one. (The first one I get, so there are no fights)

I will most likely be able to find out where it's been since about the mid 70's.

The only stipulation I ask is I be able to share it on here when I find out in a couple weeks where it's been.
