If you sent in the $50 fee to the Cody Museum for as historical letter, I bet it would document your '94 as 1947 or so.
A friend did that his letter read

The year of manufacture for serial number xxxxxxx is Between 1943 and 1948..

No records are available form 1943 - 1948.
My figure came from just averageing the number of guns made in the period divided by the number of years, it's all I could think of at the time. But we know that those numbers would not be consistant through those years

It appears they estimate that 1949 began with 1500000.
150000 was the first gun made in '48, it was presented to Pres Truman to signal the restart of normal production
