"70B" prefix mfg. 1981-83.
I have three "70B" prefix pistols. Two of them (70B399xx and 70B449xx) are Combat Government models mfg. in 1983. The other (70B108xx) appears to be a standard Government model. Until I came across this last one, I thought ALL of the 70B prefix pistols were Combat Government models.
Show us a pic of yours. :)
