    Very nice Vitaly. I just found out the Gun I purchased in Greece “new” in Sept 2009 was produced in Mar 2007 – 2.5 yrs before.

    I purchased my 870 new in 1973 or possibly ’74, a Wingmaster 870 with factory 18.25″ barrel, at a J.C. Pennys. Its serial number is SxxxxxxV. I entered sv for the two letters and it told me that the gun was made in 2001 or 1979, which I know is incorrect. Are the letters on newer models consecutive? Am I just too old?
    The gun, which I had Parkerized in the mid 80’s, with a Choate pistol grip full stock, Choate extended magazine and a Pachmayr fore end installed at the same time, has probably only been fired 25 times, never in anger. However, it has provided peace of mind many times over that period.

    Purchased a 12 Gauge Remington Pump approx 1983 from Sears in Winston Salem, NC. Someone has stolen it and I know who did, but can’t get local Law Enforcement to look into it as I don’t have the Serial Number. Anyone know how I can research information, using my Name to retrieve the Serial Number?

    I have a Police Magnum (purchased in ’98), there are no discernible letters on the left side of my barrel. Maybe they were stamped on very faintly and the parkerization filled them in. There is a number with a letter M after it on the receiver.

    I’ve got a crazy question. I just bought a used 870 express tactical, model 81198. From what I can tell from online research, this model was first produced around 2009/2010. The serial # on my gun starts with RS, which would indicate it was born in 1998. What can you tell me to clear up this mystery? Thanks and safe shooting!!

    Responding to my post above – have since learned that the month/year code is on the barrel, but mine still appears to be AL, indicating a year way before I think these first came out. Maybe someone switched the barrels?

    My 870 has a sn on the left side of the receiver is 209938v. There is also an engraved BDL next to the Model 870 on the same side, the barrel is a replacement. When was it mfg?
