pre ban doesnt matter anymore. you can try contacting olympic with the serial number and they might tell you when it was made

Previn mostly matters in states that may still have a ban in effect, AND still allow a grandfather clause if any of those exist for transferring the gun in preban configuration.

Many of the early preban Oly rifles had cast receivers. If the lettering is raised it is a early pre-ban.

What are those dates? Preban usually refers to pre- 9/1994, the date of the Clinton AWB. The federal ban sunsetted 9/2004 except in a few states that extended the ban with state law.
