Finding out the age of aya and Sabatti


Recommended Posts

AyA either the proof marks - or  e mail AyA at aya@aya-fineguns.com and give them the serial number.  There used to be a wonderful lady there called Carmen who answered by return, but I hear she has now retired ........ but the service continues.

Also chart here http://www.shotguns.se/html/aya_serial_numbers.html

Sabatti - I don't know other than from the proofmarks

I’m always rather nonplussed at these ‘How old’s me gun’ threads. With mass produced guns such as these, with the best will in the world, what odds does it make?

As stated above for AYA guns.

For Sabatti, if you google 'Year of manufacture for Italian firearms' it will have a table giving a two letter date code that will be found normally on the barrel flats

i.e

BA for 1991 to BZ for 2005

Then

CA for 2006, CB for 2007 etc.

These are proof dates apparently not necessarily manufacture dates but should be near enough to assume date of manufacture.

Hope this helps.

OB

Aya wont tell you without now paying to join their "club"

There is a date chart online cant remember where so you can use your serial number to date....roughly...

Google "aya serial number age"....

There is a link above (repeated below).  It's a new thing to me to have to pay, but I had heard that Carmen - who supplied data (free) for many years had retired.
