Hi guys, new to the site and i am looking for assistance. I just recently purchased a romanian wasr 10 and am having no luck at finding out the date that it was manufactured. any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
The "81" is likely the date that the parts are from - taken from a demilled military rifle. I've seen this on many WASR 10/63 rifles - kind of surprised this one is not marked 10/63 but perhaps it was assembled prior to Century coining that term.
When Century shipped them the box often, but not always had a date on it. Perhaps you could contact Century.
I'm guessing it was imported in the 2005-2009 time period. The electro-pen import mark font matches the style used on other Century imports in that time frame.
Never seen one marked like that Not even close to the older 10/63s as far trunnion markings.
No Arsenal stamping on the front trunnion so my guess its a model that has come out in the last few years.
All the 10/63s I have had have the arsenal stamps and the full year date.
