    Just bought a west german sig p6. How do I find out what year it was made?

    A serial number and a call to Sig Sauer customer service would be the fastest, and likely the accurate way.

    It is stamped on the right side of the slide by the front sight. Ex: 5/84

    Learn something new every day. I guess the manufacture date wasn't something I ever worried about on mine.

    Thank you sir. Its marked 8/82. I was hoping for an 83 since that's my birth year.
