On the top of the Luger just in front of the action before the barrel starts is a four digit number In this case 1918 is this the serial number?
No, the 1918 is the date of manufacture of that particular gun. The serial number has more digits, likely five or six. If yours is a "matching Luger" then that means that the gun still has all of the original parts. You can tell this by looking for a two digit number on almost all of the smaller parts (toggle, barrel, barrel extension, trigger, trigger plate, bolt, etc). This number should be the same on all the parts and is the last two digits of the main serial number that is on the frame somewhere. If it is a completely matching Luger, then the magazine number will also match. Most of them don't, however.
Most military lugers have between 2 and 4 numbers for the serial.
some commercial lugers have up to five number serial.
If there is a serial number, it should be conspicously marked on the receiver. Shotguns and small caliber rifles did not require serial numbers before 1968, so many do not have one. If it is a break-action single shot or double barrel, there may be additional markings on the bottom of the barrel(s) and on the flat parts of the action that the barrel covers when the it is closed. The Hercules brand name was…

You cannot locate the serial number on your Glenfield model 10 22 caliber single shot bolt action rifle Do you have to remove the barrel to locate it?
No.... If the bolt hasn't been replaced, the serial number will be on the bolt. You can also find one on the barrel under the fore grip if it isn't apparent on the barrel where it mates to the receiver, and on the receiver its self. Remember that all weapons are required to have the serial number stamped on all removable parts (major parts)
What is the age of a 22 calilber Colt revolver serial 30727 with the number 8 below the serial number?
What is the manufacture date of Smith and Wesson 6 shot revolver 38 special 2 inch barrel serial number 831760?
It could be a Military and Police model that you have with that high a serial number,which was made from 1940-1945.I am not aware that it was made with a 2 inch barrel though.Does your serial number have a letter or number and letter before the serial number?If so please relist it,and I would have a better chance of identifying your Smith and Wesson revolver,along with when it was made.
Where can you find the serial number on your marlin 336 cs 30-30 its not on either side of the barrel?
Most serial numbers on lever action guns are founr under the lever. I would check there. On all firearms manufactured in the US after 1968, a unique (for the model) identifying serial number must be on the receiver. You will not find a serial number on the barrel. Marlin serializes Model 336 rifles on the upper tang behind the hammer. Early Marlin rifles were serialized on the lower tang behind the trigger before 1968, but…
