    Colt Commander Dating

    How can I find the manufacture date of a Colt Commander? The first 2 letters of the Serial Number are CJ if that helps. Thanks.

    I have had tremendous luck using the Colt web-site, "type in a s/n and get the date" app. It may be found at https://www.colt.com/serial-lookup . Good luck; if this does not work for you, there are others available, including Colt's own archive service, which may be rung at (860) 554-8088.
    Hope this helps!

    I never dated a Commander..
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/

    I once dated an Officer's model... (until I found out she was that ) Bion, too, she was into horses -- rode English -- but had no colts... (Rule # 327: Never date anyone who's SO has power over you)
