puma question

ok...just bought a puma , in amazing condition ( lonestar wood grips, smart parts all american , ect) , and my question is this .... how does one go about de-coding the serial number to find out when it was made ?...from research on the net i see they were made from 1994-1996 ish** ( depending on where i looked) ..anyone know if the serial numbers are coded as to find date ? also any ideas as to value here ?

From my conversations with Jerry, the first number is the year, so 94, the second letter is the marker P for Puma, the rest is the number of guns produce.
It still amazes me that they made so many and you see so few around.
I had one that was 4P100007, and they made Pumas in 94 and 95.

They go up and down for no reason. I've paid $50 on ebay at one time and $200 at another depending on demand.
You have a Puma with a Bobcat front hanger, a good barrel and a cool grip. I would say $100 -$125, but in the current economy its tuff to get what something is worth, only what someone can afford to pay.

Those really are some mysterious quantities. I never saw an ICD marker until I got on MCB. In my area, I've seen no other cats and only one freestyle.

Even my worst cat was rebuild-able, so I also would wonder where 100,000 pumas went.

yea I was blown away too cuz my 95 is at 70,000. thats a heck of alot of Pumas. I'm still not sure it makes sense, but I have 2 Panthers and one is at 70,000 and the other 110,000 both from 93 and you see those even less.

Could it be that the production numbers are for ICD not the specific ICS marker? So it's the 100,000th marker not the 100,000th puma?

I dont think so because I have "new" models with lower numbers.
