For Spanish built guns up until 94 there is a letter code as part of the proof marks. there will be a letter next to a number. After 94 the date is the last two numbers of the four part serial number. I have owned no less than 5 of the early Lanbers and have a lot of spares. I still own a one off custom Lanber (my first) that I refiled the action, and re ribbed the barrels including Purdey fore end fins during lunch breaks when I was at H&H.

Great guns. Sadly spares pretty much obsolete. A couple of specialist suppliers still have some. None at GMK anymore. Sorry I'm waffling but someone mentioned Lanber.

i know a certain well known gunmaker.....who ...in his show room had Lanber's.....he was tickled pink with them and the price...they flew off the shelves and never came back....

Date information is at the bottom of this page: http://www.shotguns.se/html/spain.html

I would assume 2010?

 

That's right. Assuming he has left off the 12-76 off the end of the numbers given. So 13030159110 would be stamped 13-03-01591-10-12-76 on his gun.

13 is the maker (Lanber), 03 is the type of gun(shotgun), 01591 is the gun number, 10 is the year of manufacture (2010) and the last two are obviously 12 bore 76mm chambers.

Earlier Lanbers had a serial number followed by 12-70 as in those days they were 70mm chambers and no requirement for makers code, country of origin code or year of manufacture incorporated into the numbering.
