Default Ruger LCP pre-recall with 373 serial number?

I am looking at buying a Ruger LCP from an online seller. The seller is the second owner of the gun. The pictures he posted of it show a 373 prefix serial number, which I thought were all post recall. But he advised that the previous owner told him the gun was sent in and had recall work done. I asked him about this, and he said he will check to see when he gets home if it has the Ruger stamp indicating a fixed recall.

Is it possible for a 373 prefix serial number LCP to have been recalled?
Also, is it preferable to have a post recall LCP versus a pre-recall LCP which has been fixed, or does it not matter?

Thanks

I have an LCP with 370 prefix and it was recalled. To my understanding the 373 was definitely post recall. Anything 372 (maybe 371) or higher was post recall. I can't tell any difference in trigger pull or operation from pre and post recall. It don't matter if you get a recalled gun or a post recall gun-they'll be the same. Like NGIB said-call Ruger and ask if you're not sure.

Turns out I got myself all confused. It was two different LCPs I was looking at, and I forgot I had emailed two different people, so I got myself mixed up
Thanks for the help guys

Any older LCP (370xxxxx usually) that's had the factory modification will have a small black triangle on the backstrap just below the hammer. Picture on Ruger website.
