Any method for translating the serial numbers into production dates for the H&R and NEF shotguns, revovlers, and rifles?

K=1996
L=1997
M=1998
N=1999
P=2000
R=2001
S=2002
T=2003
U=2004
V=2005

Btuff,

Great list! I've been looking for this all weekend. Do you or anyone else have a complete list? I have some guns that fall outside of these ranges.

Thanks,
-Kyle

:D

Outside of these ranges? None of your prefixes match up?
This is all of the info I have seen, but there may be more.
You might just call H&R.

Thanks. I guess I'm wondering if 1986-1995 runs A through J. It would make sense since NEF started in '86, right?

Thanks again,
-Kyle

Excellent! I originally started looking for my son's great grandfather's 20 gauge, and realized I might as well complete the list for the other (newer) five NEF guns I had.

Thanks,
-Kyle
