    above 11500 buttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

    Serial numbers mean nothing-- some barrels have been reserial numbered several times

    The manufacture date is much more reliable and difficult to change

    Regards from Iowa

    Krieghoff no longer puts SRs on bbls since most owners change bbls from orig gun----You'll always find the SR# on the receiver and if you wish Krieghoff will restamp or stamp a requested SR# on your bbl to match your receiver---I have 2 K-Guns with non matching SR# and could care less----It's your choice.

    englishupland,

    Janine Snyder at KI has access to a catalogued list of Krieghoff barrel serial numbers, but again, as the above posters have said it's not 100% perfectly accurate for a variety of reasons. You can call her at 610-847-5173. You won't find a more helpful person.
