Colt Service Model Ace with "70BXXXXX" Serial Number

Newbie question so it's pretty simple. Is it possible to have a Colt Service Model 22 with a "70B" prefix on the serial number? The gun doesn't mention "conversion" anywhere on the slide. Called Colt and they say it was made in 1983 and shows to be a Government model. Appreciate any help. Regards

I once owned a 22 Ace with the 70B prefix and in my checking I found that Colt did make some in that SN range. As kenhwind stated someone could have made a swap of slide and receiver that created that gun. Without the original box, I suspect you will need to get a letter from Colt Historical to prove it is correct.
