how do you determine date of manufacture on CG gun via serial number etc, i dont mind a used gun but dont want to pay premium $$ for an 06 model with .725 bore.
So i want to make sure that even if i buy new it is this model not a couple of yrs old.
For sure want .735 bore and want to be sure of date of manufacture before i buy.
TIA

The date codes are easier found in the proof code on the bottom of the barrels in a box. There is no reference that I am aware of by serial number for most of the Italian guns.
This link to an earlier post has the date code / proof mark explanation.

If you are worried about getting a smaller bore each barrel is marked near the rear (should be 18.6 - 18.7) and the chokes should say Maxis.
