Board Stats. Specifically, I would like to know the year of manufacture and any other information the serial numbers provide.
Also, if possible, I need to find out exactly which rifling method was used to rifle these barrels, which are all factory fitted and potentially who manufactured the barrels if the rifled barrels are bought from another manufacturer. I have tried to contact the manufacturers directly and have looked through past AFTE papers, but unfortunately have not obtained all the information I require.
If anyone can help me or suggest someone else who can it would be much appreciated. Please PM me and i can send you the serial numbers of the firearms. Thanks Rachel. Since you are in the UK, I would recommend contacting Leeds Royal Armouries and see if they can help you with the information you need.
They have quite a collection and a lot of infomation about serial numbers. I'm not sure how much they would be willing to or could share, but it's worth a try. On pistols from Germany there is two letter datecode year next to proofhouse mark. Thank you very much for the information and points of reference that you have supplied me with, they are much appreciated and helpful.
Any more of these regarding serial number codings would be very useful for any other 9 mm handgun manufacturer. I know that this is very wide ranging, but I am hoping to be looking at a large range of pistols during my research so advance knowledge would help no end. Also, such contacts could even be for sales rep's or equivalents of manufacturers that I may be able to get this information from. Thanks again Rachel.
Thank you for some more reference sources with regard to 9mm firearms. I am currently trying to source a contact who may know about the manufacturing of Luger pistols at DWM in order to answer some of the technical questions I have. Do you think those on the forum could help with this or do you know of anyone else? I have tried to contact the company who now owns what was DWM, but have not had a response as yet.
Regards Rachel. Hi Rachel What are the questions? Luger SNs are confusing as you have to ID the specific version even if you have the serial number. There are reissue Interarms Mauser Lugers.

Dror Negev Negev NGI have a Desert Eagle. The serial number is only 4 digits not sure if that is significant My question. I have an earlier version of this gun with a serial number under in a steel frame full size Ina 9mm. Jump to navigation Jump to search. By the number on the left. Yes, most likely. Lots of things have serial numbers, and those are often recorded in guidebooks.
Additionally, calling the manufacturer such as Singer Sewing Machines with a serial no will get you a date as well. Remington Firearms have a letter code stamped into the steel barrel in addition to the serial no. Which indicates the month and year of manufacture and that decoding key was found right here at WikiAnswers!
Also, you can look on the back driverside on top of the head of you car or truck motor and there are some numbers and they will tell you what year it was made and what size.
Like the Chevy v8 with the number was made from to for that style of engine. Keep in mid that auto makers used the same parts for a few years before over hauling the look. NA patent number will not identify the object but only some feature that was new and different enough for a company to get exclusive rights to use it after obtaining a patent.Please support BullpupForum.
X95 serial Numbers. Also are the Tavor and X95 serial numbers run in the same numbering block or does each model have its own block of numbers? Re: X95 serial Numbers. Is there a way of telling the manufactured date? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk. Here's the response I got from them earlier today for reference my X95's serial is TXXX : Hi iiiwildfireiiiThere's no official method of telling the exact date of your rifle's birth.
A Tavor's serial number is generated in Israel, and from the time the receiver is machined, sits in a crate in Israel, arrives in the US and sits in a crate until it is assembled and rolls out the door in its IWI box, it's anyone's guess as to what it's technical manufacture date actually is. If it helps, take comfort in knowing that it's a fairly low serial number, so if IWI ends up producing millions of X95s, you've got an original.
If you have any other questions, be sure to contact me.
Sincerely, customer service dude's name Customer Service. Quote from: iiiwildfireiii on October 06,PM. Not knowing what the starting number series was it will be difficult to know, but I would think that the "T90" serial number is a later manufacture than a "T00". What the CS said really doesn't make a lot of sense, Txxx is a "fairly low" serial number compared to what? Inquiring minds are interested.
Mine is in the 52xxx serial number, so I assume I got one of the first fifty three thousand to come to the US.
I would imagine the US rifles all have their own serial numbers, and likely could imagine every country they are imported to gets their own serial number designation. However on the contrary, it is a relatively new rifle, and Israel is a pretty small place.

I would not be surprised if there are less that x95's in the entire world. I would make sense that the factory uses all the same receivers and just changes fire control groups and such for each country of import.
I personally doubt there are 9 million Tavors in circulation. Israels military is pretty small, and most of their people have been using m4's for a while.
I would bet a hundred bucks there are less than one million tavor x95's in the world, probably less than k. Purchased about 2 months ago and was fresh in from the distributor. Edited to note mine is FDE. I sure would like to know the reason why some X95s SR. Oh well, it is just another mystery of life get to answered. From what I've noticed from looking at various members rifles, and random rifles on the web, I've seen three kinds of serial numbers on the X I've seen rifles with JUST numbers: Now, I've not actually counted or made notes and these are just my own quick observations, but it looks like all of the IDF rifles that I see pictures of have just numbers for serials.
As for what the T9's designateIWI is an Israeli company that builds military grade weapons for people just like you and me. But the rifles are just one of the tricks IWI has up its sleeve.
They also make pistols. So the Jericho is back, and it has the full weight of IWI behind it. If you have had your fill of the anorexic plastic pistols that have dominatedthis sledgehammer may be just what you need.
Shooting the full sized steel is a lot like shooting a competition handgun. The gun is heavy, which means recoil is tame. The trigger pull is smooth and the break is exact. The single action trigger pull breaks right at 5. The thumb safety allows the Jericho to be carried cocked-and-locked, like a The controls are accessible and over-sized making manipulation possible with only one hand—especially if you are right handed.
I put the gun through my normal review paces. The is extremely reliable. Shooting with out hiccup and eating everything from steel cased Wolf to Freedom Munitions remanufactured range ammo, the never even hinted at choking.
Considering this is a full-sized, steel-framed gun you should expect it to be very stable, and you would be right. That stability combines with the solid trigger to produce an accurate pistol.
The pistols are more accurate than most handguns in its price bracket primarily because it is more forgiving of user errors like poor trigger-finger placement. Its three dot sights make for quick and accurate shots. Muzzle flip is negligible. Slowing things down, I find my groups start to shrink. While there may not be excessive texturing on the grip or frame, the gun is still easily controlled, thanks primarily to the size and weight.
Forcing the gun to shoot from double action makes accuracy slightly more complicated, as you would expect. The long take-up of the trigger takes some staging to be able to pull off clean shots. Lowering the hammer manually is doable, but in my opinion unnecessary. Fans of the old-school single action will feel right at home, but the rest of you may need some practice with moving the gun through stages of preparation.
Have I hammered home that this gun is a tank? Shooting a gun like this is incredibly easy. The light recoil and reliable accuracy make practice less fatiguing.
But there are drawbacks to the added mass.Log in or Sign up. Mar 3, 1. After a run of refinishing CZ 75's, in several variations, I've moved on to a very similar pistol, called the Jericho F. The F being full frame version, with a frame mounted safety. So this is a pre IWI pistol. I believe most of the parts were made by Tanfogilo, shipped to Israel, and assembled. Many of the parts are similar to the CZ. In comparison, the Jericho uses roll pins in many spots, where the CZ uses a solid pin. The Jericho roll pins are greater diameter, so while many the parts look the same, the mounting holes on the Jericho are larger.
I think the CZ parts could be drilled to work? Disassembly will show that there are many differences. The magazine brake is the same, as are the slide stop spring and pin.
Grip screws too. The 16 round CZ 75 do not. I ordered 4 and got free shipping. I just finished a parkerizing job, which was the original finish.

I'm waiting for new grips. When I get to the range I will post an update and some pictures. The machine work on the Jericho is just as good as the old CZ 75's. Even better I think. I also have another in FS.
The S being semi compact. It has the shorter barrel, but same grip size, using the same mags as the F version. BlaiwaywMar 3, EclecticShootertowboater and Dallas53 like this. Mar 3, 2. The Jericho series are some very excellent pistols. Very well made and decently accurate.
They never got as popular as some other brands, but still they have their own cult following. I would feel comfortable owning a Jericho pistol. Sad thing is, just hardly ever see them in my area very often for sale.
