When first introduced serial numbers were placed on the bottom of the barrel in front of the forearm. The only other place they will appear is on the receivers on the right side. This started in 1968 because of the new Federal gun laws.

The serial numbers for the early guns had an "X" preceding the year of manufacture. This designated the model. During each year from 1965-to-1974, the serial numbers began with 0001.

The model codes for the T-bolts prior to 1975 were "X". These were then changed to 116 for the T-1 and 216 for the T-2.

1965 = X5
1966 = X6
1967 = X7
1968 = X8
1969 = X69 or X9
1970 = X70
1971 = X71
1972 = X72
1973 = X73 or X37
1974 = X74 or X47
