Hey guys, I have been on a buying spree lately. I had another SXS arrive today. It is a FEG Continental 200 12 gauge 3" chamber. It looks like it just came out of the box. Anyhow I have 2 things I am curious about. Is the 73 that is stamped on the water table the year? Secondly, the forearm and receiver are stamped f1148 but the barrel flat is just stamped 148 .At first I thought the barrels didn't match because there is another number on the other side of the water table. Then it dawned on me that the other side has the last part of the serial number, 148. Did they sometimes just put part of the serial number on the flats or did someone just get careless with the stamping. So am I correct on the year being 73 and the barrels do match?
