Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

Stoeger imported the Zypher (made by Victor Sarasqueta) in the mid-60's.

There should be a year date code stamped somewhere into the metal - something like:

http://www.hallowellco.com/proof_date_codes.htm

1961 = G1
1962 = H1
1963 = I1
1964 = J1
1965 = K1
1966 = L1
1967 = M1
1968 = N1

.

Spanish date marks are on the barrel flats not the action flats.
