Beretta Serial Number Age Lookup

In 1945, Beretta began adding codes to their pieces which could be used to get its age. These codes were originally written in roman numerals.

Beretta began adding date codes in 1945, initially using roman numerals. Since 1975 two letters have been used (e.g. DA). Prior to 1945 date codes were in Roman numerals and included the month and the last two numbers of the year, so January 1922 would be rendered IXXII.

Our Beretta age lookup tool works with any side-by-side, over-and-under, or semi-automatic shotgun. To find your gun’s year of proof, simply enter the date code portion of the serial number. This is found in an engraved rectangle below the chamber on a side-by-side, beneath the chambers on an over-and-under, and close to the receiver end of the barrels on a semi-automatic shotgun.
