I recently purchased an ASM Walker with the serial #1556. Can somebody tell me when this pistol was made? Thanks.

Serial numbers are not used to determine when ASM, or for that matter any of the Italian replicas, were manufactured. The Italians use a proof date code stamped on the frame. This is the decoder ring:

The code is usually contained within a square box, although the earliest codes did not use the box.

Thanks for the reply. My Walker was made in 1968.
