    Default Serial numbers and manufactured date

    I picked up a used Model 70 in 375 H&H back in Sep. Does anybody know of an on-line site where I can run the serial # number to get the build date? I cant find any info post 64.
    Thanks!

    Is this a taboo question or something?
    Just looking for the year it was manufactured.....late 80’s or early 90’s I’m guessing…..Anybody?

    Boliep,

    Thanks, but still no luck….I’ve already tried that site; when I hit the Model 70 link, no data shows. Everything else I find is all pre 64.

    It looks like none of the links on that site work at all.

    This site is identical but works

    Ray,
    Thanks, this site worked! Had to drop the ‘G’ off the serial number and just enter the numbers. Looks like I’ve got a 1980 Model 70.
    Thanks for the help!
