    Any body know what yr. my to 303 barrel were made by looking at the serial #.


    the #s are M55952F

    and M70462F
    If any body knows that would be great I read that the ones made after 92 have longer forcing cones.

    You don't get the year of manufacture from the serial number, you get it from a proof mark. The key to Italian year of manufacture codes is here: http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=73492

    How about just looking at the forcing cone? Easy to tell how long it is.
