Mr Knibbs drew up his list from entries in the original factory ledgers. This list will be of assistance in narrowing down the age of your rifle. For a much more detailed record of your rifle’s manufacture and despatch from the factory, please refer to the above book. Two sources of date identification have been published, apparently before the uncertainty mentioned above was understood, by Dennis Hiller in his book Air Rifles and by P J Colman in his articles in Guns Review.

Just scratch it, argues Jonathan Young. Your dog looks at you in dismay when you forget walkies again and head for the shed instead. But what do you do next? Where do you go for advice? For many shooters, collecting airguns is a very personal thing. A lot of people just do their own thing and are happy with whatever comes along next. But what if you want more? In the last issue we touched on the idea of collecting to a theme, such as specific marques, or collecting only springers, or only pistols rather than rifles, but how do you find out about older guns?

Id still be interested in dating it for personal knowledge though. Thanks for any info given, its not easy finding much on this so far.
Yes, of course take it out for the day, and lift its skirts, because this means it not being ‘stood up’ Many, but not all, of our pages carry date information on the various rifles illustrated or discussed, where it has been possible to be sure of data. There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks.
You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.
Do not briefly glance over a page and assume that the information you require is not there. It may not be immediately obvious, but careful observation may provide you with the information for which you are looking. Such research is a major part of the joy of owning, collecting and shooting classic or historic rifles. For BSA and Greener rifles view complete catalogues from to the mid s on our. As far as civilian rifles are concerned, some manufacturers have their own dating systems, with, for example, prefixes or suffixes to serial numbers providing that information.
Anschutz target rifles fall into this category, and their system is given on the page for these rifles. Quite apart from such dating information as we have been able to provide on many of the individual rifle types included on this website, there are other ways in which you may be able to confirm the date of manufacture, or at least the date of proof, of your rifle.
