To Date a Percussion Rifle, you have to consult your owner’s manual to find the exact location of the serial number on your rifle if you have a model or modern replica of a percussion rifle. If your rifle is an antique, you need to use the magnifying glass to inspect your gun for a possible serial number and manufacturer’s or inspector’s stamp. If you cannot locate the serial number on your own, you should contact a gun dealer to assist you. When you have located the serial number, you can look your rifle up on the website proofhouse.com. If you cannot locate a serial number on an antique rifle, you must use the flashlight for any identifying marks or the manufacturer’s name.
After that, you have to contact the manufacturer directly regarding your firearm.
