    Anyone know of a site besides Colt to look up Colt serial numbers? I can successfully look up a serial number on Colt's site if there's no letters involved. When the serial number begins with a letter it says "number not found". Any one else have this problem?

    No one knows of a site to look up Colt serial numbers other than Colt Manufacturing .com

    that service gives you the entire history of that firearm for collectors looking for provenance on the old collectable colts for insurance and sales purposes. its not to look up what day your 2013 colt xse was made :)
