Re: Dating an R9 from a serial number
Remember that 2002 was a short year for R9's...I don't remember how many but its not over 1000.
That is most likely a 2012, Whats the COA look like, and which case did it come with?
Pics MAN Pics!!!!
the breakdown is 9 (R9) 2 is the last year of that decade. 2002 2012; 1197 The number of R9's produced. If the COA is a Black or Brown colored book (leatherette) then its a 2012, possibly a brown style lifton case. the switched COA's in 08 or so....
