How old is it?

Yet another question.

The KP-2 that I picked up in the Junk or Treasure ebay auction is missing some characteristics of my other KP-2.

This one does not have the bb holes for the bolt.

This one has a serial number of B 10682 (Might be 3 10682, but I am pretty sure they started with Bs and it just isn't a complete stamp.)

This one has no Sheridan markings. In fact, all that is stamped on it minus the serial number is:
"Pursuit Marketing, Inc.
Northbrook, IL 60062"
and that is in the middle of the lower tube on the left side.

Is there a way to figure out age by using the serial number?

Thanks.

Because I know people will ask. Here is a pic of it not together. Right now I am only missing the front plug to the mag. It didn't come with that, a co2 plug threaded end (it had the rod and tip), or a main spring. Other than that, all parts were included.

I would guess that you have a transitional model that falls after the K2 (bolt-action) PMI's and the pump-action versions. I would date it somewhere in the 1989-90 timeline, but I could be off by a few years either way.

The BB holes and the Sheridan markings came in with the 1990s.

Another thing, that knurled pump handle is an old piece. It was very quickly replaced by a ribbed version. I would say this gun of yours was born with that pump on it.

Also, while that stock looks basically like a KP stock, I have never seen an old one with a "recoil pad" like yours has. Is that an aftermarkey add on, as near as you can tell?

Cheers,
D.

The end of the stock is not "rounded" at the edges like my others. It is a straight edge that butts up nicely to the recoil pad. I assumed it was aftermarket, but I really don't know. If it is, they may have shaved off some of the original stock to get it to fit nicely.

Looks like yours is pretty much the same as mine. Except that I can't even find a serial number on mine.

They lopped off the K2 stocks to make 'room' for the pump, didn't round them until later.

I've got one on the wall that looks about 99% the same, save for having NO factory safety on the trigger assembly, nor any sign that there ever was one to begin with (no wear, no mounts, no cutouts in the stock... We're the 2nd owner). It's even got the knurled pump handle.

I know for a fact that ours was purchased in 1989.

does it have no notches in the stock for the safety 'tabs'?
Haven't seen that yet.

No drilled and tapped hole on the bottom of the rear plug for the screw that holds in the rocker safety? That's all there is, nothing fancy. It would have left the factory with it.... but someone might have removed it because they don't work all that great.
