Hey guys, just joined up on the forum. I picked up a LNIB 27-2. Target sights, standard trigger, hammer, magna grips. Factory fired only. Serial is N220195. Any idea of manufacturing date? Here's a few pictures.

Thanks!

Have fun & be safe.

Welcome Aboard!

Early 1970's..... I'm guessing around 1972. Don't have my book right handy.

Nice snag. These things were going through the roof for a while.... slowing down some on prices, but they will come back, and you NIB example will be worth a premium.

Thank you for the welcome. Initial research says 1974 but I would like to confirm that. I suppose a factory letter is in order. Here's it's little brother...1978 6" Python in Royal Blue LNIB never fired with all the bells & whistles:

According to "The Book", N200000 range started in 1974 and went through 1977. Best guess for yours would be '74 or '75. It's in real nice shape.
