    It means it was made in 1976.

    So that that make them more desireable or less desireable? How can one bring the POI down some?

    Impossible to lower point of impact without bending the barrel or putting on a new rib. Barrel bending on a BT is difficult at best. Sell it to someone who likes high shooting guns and buy another model.

    If you can stand it, put one of those large magnetic Hi-Viz front sights on the rib. It will lower the POI about 4" at 40 yards.
