    Italian shotguns has proof marks on the monobloc, starting 1945 the unified year code will ID the barrel.

    Since Perazzi has a relatively short history (since '60s) the year code is clearly stamped on the monobloc. Post 1945 Beretta will have the same year code.

    Winchester shotguns depend on models, mostly by ser. #s.

    If you post more information, I can look it up for you.
