why does my gun have three letters in the serial number, the last 5 are nmm43. anybody know why
Not sure....Maybe they made so many of them that the serial numbers turned to letters and numbers....again im not sure.
Welcome to the site though! Ask greasypaws or samD.
Because for each space with a letter, there are 26 possible variations, versus only 10 possible with numbers.
probably origin of manufacturer.Do you have any more information on the Citori?
i went to the browning site and it shows the year but the last three meen some kinda barrel i think. the nm mean year made the m43 is what i don,t find the answer for thanks
