    What other markings are on the gun? On the right side of the frame, do you see any Roman numerals or letters? That would be the date code - post it here and someone can tell you when it was made. Can you post a picture of the gun?

    XXX = 1974 (or hardcore porn). The other marks are the Italian proof house stamps. I think the FIE (if that's what it is) means it's a Pietta, but I might be wrong on that.

    FIE was not known for importing quality firearms ( of any type).

    Given FIE's reputation & described condition the gun sounds like a wall hanger to me.
