How do I find out what year a Beretta DT10 was made. I know that the DT10 started in 2000 and the DT10L stated in 2004. But thats all I can find out.
I need to find the right year for a gun that I'm looking at.

There's an Italian National Proof House stamp on the receiver and on the bottom of the monobloc. Its two upper case alpha characters in a small rectangle, about 1/4" or 6mm size.

The letters correspond to date of manufacture as follows, for years since 2000:

BN 2000<br>
BP 2001<br>
BS 2002<br>
BT 2003<br>
BU 2004<br>
BZ 2005<br>
CA 2006<br>
CB 2007<br>
CC 2008<br>
CD 2009<br>

Look for something like the "AM" in the photo below, over to the left.

In trying to date Italian guns by proof date just remember the stamp indicates when the barrels were proofed not when a piece was fully completed and shipped.

Yeah, but I don't know that there's any other way to date them.
