Default Finding the age of a beretta 92FS

Does anyone know how to find the manufacture year of a Berreta? I have gone to the Beretta web page and not been able to find anything on how to look up the year of a weapon. I know how to do it with rugers, winchesters and otheres but am having no luck with looking up a Beretta. Thank for any help!

I'm no Beretta scholar, but I've researched this recently for a friend.

Beretta started stamping the year of manufacture on its pistols in 1920. In early 1954 they switched to Roman numerals, sometimes combined with regular Arabic numerals, and from 1975 they started using letters.

During the fascist period they stamped the year of manufacture in Arabic numerals and the year of fascist rule in Roman numerals. So a gun marked "1936-XIV" would have been manufactured in 1936, the 14th year of fascist government in Italy.

Here are some markings and the year they represent:

X 1954
XI 1955
XII 1956
XIII 1957
XIV 1958
XV 1959
XVI 1960
XVII 1961
XVIII 1962
XIX 1963
XX 1964
XXI 1965
XXII 1966
XXIII 1967
XXIV 1968
XXV 1969
XXVI 1970
XX7 1971
XX8 1972
XX9 1973
XXX 1974
AA 1975
AB 1976
AC 1977
AD 1978
AE 1979
AF 1980
AH 1981
AI 1982
AL 1983
AM 1984
AN 1985
AP 1986
AS 1987
AT 1988
AU 1989
AZ 1990
BA 1991
BB 1992
BC 1993
BD 1994
BF 1995
BH 1996
BI 1997
BL 1998
BM 1999
BN 2000
BP 2001
BS 2002
BT 2003
BU 2004
BZ 2005
