Age of a GunFirst you have to know what you have. There are published serial number lists for some manufacturers. Others marked their guns with a date code and some of these codes are available but others are not. And many of the old companies had no method of identifying the date of manufacture. So, some guns can be precicely dated while for others you may have to be content to know the range of years during which the model was manufactured or when the company existed.

Depends on the gun.

Some guns have the year stamped on them.

Some guns may be identified by the serial number.

Some guns can be dated by particular features they have.

Some guns cannot be dated any more accurately than the nearest decade.
