Browning BAR ID?

Hi Folks!

I'm trying to identify when a Browning BAR -- serial number 68xxx M9 -- was made. It's a Belgian made gun, and I'm guessing the final "9" indicates 1969, but I'm not sure. Any thoughts?

Also, it's chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. Would that be considered a long or short action? Long, I'm guessing.

M9? M69?

M69 is 1969.

Yup, "M9"

I've seen some inconsistencies in Belgian Browning serial numbering before, for example, on an Auto 22.
