Date on bottom of monoblock of original barrel. Ex: "673 = June 1973. That is the date barrels were proofed, not date gun was completed. I have a gun with proof dates of 1970 and original owner bought gun new in 1973. Have another dated 1976, but gun was bought new from du Pont in 2002. So, it is just an indication. Dieter Krieghoff says guns were USUALLY (not always) completed about 3 months after proof dates. However, this still does not indicate when gun was actually sold new. Not much help but I hope this helps to some degree.

Why would anyone want to know when a gun was first sold? The question is always when was it made isnt it?

When someone "claims" a gun is first sold is always suspect to me.

Guns often go through product design and parts changes

So I have seen people on here claim to have a 2000 krieghoff when in fact they have a 1979 krieghoff

When this is pointed out they then "claim" it was first sold in 2000
