Hi folks! I recently picked up a very nice P1, Manurhin French model, serial number is 237349. It looks almost brand new, and has import marks from INT. Import in Miami. All matching numbers.

The finish does not look like a blue, but maybe a parkerized or phosphate? Doesn't look refinished, but not like the blue on most P38 / P1 I have seen. It's a grainy black color.

It has the Starburst on the trigger guard and again, looks almost new.

But I have no idea how to date these things and cannot seem to find any real references on the serial number system used by the French factory.

Has a black holster with a 45 stamped in, nothing else. I was wondering if there is any way to date this?
