    When I purchased my Viper, I found the following regarding production serial numbers:


    Viper production 1977 to 1978.

    Serial number range for 1977 production: 71904M -- 97999M and 60001R -- 63400R
    Serial number range for 1978 production: 63401R . . .


    Viper Second Production 1992 to 1993

    Serial number range for 1992 production: ACxxxxx


    Your serial number is beyond the listed production serial numbers but I am not certain how accurate this information is. I'd recommend further checking to be sure.

    Ok... That worries me a little bit, however, I am more confused now because the colt sight does reference Viper under the serial number.Well I guess I need to order a letter of authentication from colt to settle it, and I suppose if it is a viper the letter will add to value and if not, oh well.Thanks again

    Anyone else see any issues with my viper? Is that serial number list hard and fast or speculation?

    I'd quit worrying about it and find a correct set of stocks. Swapping barrels on these alloy framed guns is just not an easy proposition. I think you have a nice Viper at a good price. Grow old with it and be happy. JMHO.

    As I said in my post. I accumulated that list during research when I purchased my Viper. It was accurate for the ones that I checked but don't take that list as gospel. The only sure way is to get an archive letter which is what I did.
