Hi Guys, This tidbit of information may already have been noted here on the Forum, but then again, maybe it hasn't. Well anyway, here it is for what it's worth;
>>> According to page # 248, of "The Grim Reaper" 2nd Edition / 2012, by Frank Iannamico, the author states that the recent Bulgarian manufactured AK examples may be dated by a code preceding the weapon's serial number. He further states, "The 1st 2 letters represent the production series, & the next 2 digits are the year code". So, he too believes that there is an ongoing date code on Arsenal Inc. production, exactly as posted here on the Forum by "22Many" a short while back.
