    I am looking at a Hi Power with Serial #5112T51140. This is advertised as a new pistol but is in a shop loaded with inventory. This is was virtually hidden on a lower shelf. Just curious what the possible build date is. This shop could have new guns on the shelf for years. Any help dating this would be much appreciated.

    I suspect OP might be misreading the SN. He says it's advertised as new, if what he's reading as 5112T51140 is actually 511ZT51140... it'd be a new 2016 pistol.

  3. @submoa & Shooter13: I figured the "2" was a typo, but my brain stopped before realizing it should have been a "z."

    Good to hear from you gentlemen. :)

    You are correct the 2 is actually a Z.
