Thank you very much, JJT. Your valuable contribution will be added to the database right away. You have provided an enormous bit of help in solving the Interarms date of birth mystery.

Sorry Ironman. I haven't gotten any data yet from the owners of these pistols so I don't know either. As more come trickling in hopefully I'll be able to update this valuable database and include these models. I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen any of these yet... did they make the PPK/S in blued?

Updated Charts

Here are the charts for the Interarms numbers and dates. I've been updating them as new numbers come trickling in from the fine folks who are kind enough to share them with us. With these charts folks who don't have a test target and would like to know when their Interarms PPK or PPK/S was born can get an idea. I believe this is very valuable information for someone who wants to know, and as far as I know this resource is the most complete (and only) source of such information to be found anywhere on the internet - or anywhere else for that matter!

Serial numbers, sorted by serial numbers:



Serial numbers sorted by date:



And finally, Interarms models sorted by model and serial number:



There! Now I know my A022348 was built somewhere between 1984 and 1993... Keep 'em coming boys!

Hello all. New here. I dont know if this means anything but I just bought an Interarms PPK/S. Came in original black box which has a date stamped into it in the inside upper left hand corner. Dated 11/92. Serial # is S100898. Seems to track with some of the other serial numbers posted.
