It is definitely older. But the best way is to call the factory and ask them if they can do mfr date by serial. I've called and checked on some of mine and they never seem to have a problem doing it.Is there a web page some where to identify the date of manufacture by the gun's serial no. ? I have an older P14 (S/No. RH2***) but I'm looking to find out exactly when it was made.
