The barrel will certainly tell you, though no the exact date of manufacture.Barrels room stamped "550" "550-1 or A" The "P" design has manufacturing facility peeps (very cool) however hard to come by with correct sights, if remaining. And also the ever before elusive "2G" model, Gallery unique in .22 short only. The "A" and also "1" are the same. Really slick rifles and I love them, the capability to shooting shorts, longs and long rifles an unified in the magazine pipe is a function you see no longer, cept because that the Remington Speedmaster. Price vary, however a minty one will lug $200.00 every day long and also I just take place to have one in 96% condition, right shooter from H........well girlfriend know. LTS
