Hello everyone,
I have a D frame colt with a agent barrel. After looking on proofhouse for the DOB I'm a little confused. My seriel number is 049xx.
Also what is the strange stamping prefix?
TIA

The Agent serial number should have a "LW" suffix ora letter prefix.The letter prefix started in 1970. In 1976-77 they went to a letter suffix. Which do you have?

If I'm reading you right, your Agent is serial number W049xx.

If so, your Agent was made in 1982.

The "W" series started that year, and began with W01001, and ran to about W20369 by the end of the year.
