Hello
I recently purchased a 229 from a friend. Serial number begins with AM. I cannot find the "M" in any cross references. Trying to date my pistol.
Any ideas?

All older P229's start with A, then another letter. So they started with AA, then AB, all the way to AM. AM serials went all the way to like AM168XXX or so. Mine, AM90XXX, is 2007. P229's of that era that were made with US frames have 3 letters--A, another letter, then U for US (AJU, AGU, etc...)
