A common mistake I have seen in many, many, gun shops and online sites is to assign the 12ga serial number date to a 16ga.My husband inherited it from his grandfather and we are trying to find out more about it (not to sell it, for personal knowledge). Dating these old guns are at best an educated guess.The dates listed here are based on records/logs with the range of dates. The serial number and dates are approximations only. I found what I thought was a very early 1948 Sweet Sixteen based on the serial number.
I decided to share it here since this is where much of my limited knowledge came from. Other factors need to be taken into consideration to properly date your gun.
Serial began with 1000 – 99999 followed by the model code 221 Sweet Sixteen and 171 Superlight 16 and two letter year( T=6, R=7, P=8).
