Hello - I am thinking about purchasing a Merkel 20ga SxS and was curious what year it was produced. The serial number is 386066 but I cannot find any other markings or any info on the internet to locate the date. Can anyone help?

Thank you,
Sam

The month (2 digits) and and year (2 digits) date code for manufacturing date is typically stamped on the underside of the barrel flats, near the rear lump on older Merkel SxS.

The newer Merkel date codes use letters .
