You can call Colt customer service who will give you DOM's for serials over the phone, but no other significant info or you can email a rep like Cindy LaPointe ([email protected])and ask. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

For post-1978 numbers there are two sources.

For numbers up to 1985, the R.L. Wilson book "Colt: An American Heritage" has an appendix that has all known Colt serial numbers by year from 1836 to 1985.

This book is considered by Colt to be the "official" book of Colt firearms and production,
It has a photo of EVERY model of Colt built up until '85.

For guns made after 1985, you can call the Colt factory during business hours and they will give you a production date over the phone, but NO other data.
