How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

History. Most individual manufacturers habitually put serial numbers on the weapons they produce. Such numbers can be used to ascertain the name of the manufacture, place and date of manufacture. At least for some manufacturers, a serial number can unlock myriad details about the weapon.
The serial number includes information related to the date and location of the weapon`s manufacturing. Additionally, if the weapon is stolen, it can help link the firearm to the original owner when the government places the serial number into a national database.
Under current federal law serial numbers must be located on the frame or receiver of every firearm. Serial numbers (or partial numbers) can also be located on many other parts of firearms as well.
Serial numbers, first required by the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, are intended to prevent illegal gun sales and make it easier to solve crimes by allowing individual guns to be traced.
The Easiest Way to Identify a Gun Model Type

Long guns tend to have that information stamped directly on the barrel. Pick up a rifle or shotgun and you`ll see it, usually where the barrel meets the rest of the gun. Sometimes it`s on the right side, sometimes on the left.

The Obliterated Serial Number Program allows law enforcement agencies to identify recovered firearms whose origins have been masked by serial number destruction or alteration. ATF uses the information to identify firearms trafficking patterns and related crimes.
Have it Back incorporates nearly all freely available serial numbers. Utilizing this database, you can verify before or after purchasing an item if said object has been marked as missing or stolen.
Serial numbers are unique codes that identify a product. They can be only numbers or numbers with letters and symbols. They are one-of-a-kind codes that match only one product. Usually, serial numbers are made in order and have different information sections.
Most serial numbers have at least six or seven characters, and some serial numbers have twenty or more.
Rifle barrels typically do NOT have serial numbers. The number goes on the receiver. Some European countries require the practice, but those rifles don`t normally make it here. Pistols like the Glock have both to satisfy both US and European laws.
In 1968, the Gun Control Act (GCA) imposed numerous additional requirements in the arena of gun manufacture. As per the GCA, all firearms manufactured or imported into the United States are required to bear a serial number.
Sometimes, even bullet casings have serial numbers on them, and this has been a useful tool for tracking down criminals. There are many pros and cons to requiring serial numbers on ammunition, and both sides are worth exploring. Currently, there are no strict laws in America requiring ammunition to have serial numbers.
Rifled firearms date back to at least the 15th century. As some of the earliest had straight rather than spiral grooves, it is thought that the initial purpose may have been to receive the powder residue, or fouling, that was a problem with early firearms.
Caliber is used to describe the size of a rifle or handgun bore and the size of cartridges designed for different bores. Caliber usually is measured as the diameter of the bore from land to opposite land and is expressed in hundredths of an inch, thousandths of an inch, or millimeters.
/ˈraɪfəl/ A rifle is a long, powerful gun that is fired from the shoulder. A soldier is most often armed with a rifle. Some hunters use rifles, which fire single bullets rather than the small pellets, or shot, that shotguns fire.
A barrel will produce individual markings in addition to a bullet`s land and groove impressions as the bullet passes through, and it is these unique markings that an examiner evaluates to determine whether a given bullet was fired from a particular firearm.
The 1st three numbers of your serial number will always provide your manufacture date. The 1st number is the YEAR of manufacture; the 2nd & 3rd numbers indicate the MONTH of manufacture.
Yes, you can find out the manufacture date of your GLOCK pistol by contacting GLOCK, Inc. How do I send in my GLOCK pistol for service/repair?
Q: “What year was my firearm made?” A: Each CZ firearm has the year of manufacture stamped on the firearm itself. For many years, pistol marks were located in a small oval behind the extractor/ejection port. Recent production has moved that to just in front of the serial number on the slide.
The Remington Model 760 Gamemaster is a pump-action, centerfire rifle made by Remington Arms from 1952 to 1981.

I have a winchester 70 30-06 sprng. serial number is G2571946 I am looking to sell it and i would like to know what a fair price would be. would you be able to help me out with this?
ANSWER : Hi David, It’s har to pin down a specific price without knowing the actual year of the firearm. This rifle is post 64 so the value wont be as high as a pre-64. With that said and the information given and assuming that the gun is in fair to good condition you will be looking at roughly $450-$600 range. Accessories and modifications could raise or lower that approximation. I really hope that this points you in the right direction. I may be new to Fixya but i know my guns. Let me know if this helps.

I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
ANSWER : I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.

Help! Just bought a Remington 30 06 for my grandson that has a Bushnell Sportview U4124 4-12power scope mounted on it. I would like to sight it in at 100 yards using a 180 grain shell but I don’t have the owners manual and I don’t understand an on line explanation that I found. This is the on line message: “You’ll see two horizontal crosshairs, put the top one on the animals back then zoom in until the bottom one is on his stomach. Look at the numbers on the zoom dial there should be three lines they are D – deer, E – elk and A – antelope. The numbers are the distance to the game, you then turn the external elevation knob or turret to the matching distance and shoot dead on. No need to hold over for bullet drop. The sad part will be if you didn’t get the other turrets that would have come with it as they are calibrated to different calibers and bullet weights”
I don’t understand how to set the elevation knob to 100yards when its lowest shown number is 150. If I need other turrets how or where can I get them? Thanks, a frustrated grandfather.
ANSWER : You can contact the Remington directly who will ship you a free users manual. Here is the company’s Contact Us details:

Have a remington model 12 serial number #127375 would like to know approx- year of manufacture
ANSWER : Remington Year of Manufacture Codes maybe found on the barrel of your Remington rifle [or shotgun] on the left side, just forward of the receiver; the first letter of the Code is the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters which are the year of manufacture. For shotguns with removeable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel; maybe for the receiver, as barrels do get switched around. According to the “Blue Book of Gun Values”, the coding continues as follows:Month Codes: [first letter]B – L – A – C – K – P – O – W – D – E – R – X1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10 – 11 – 12Year:______Code: [second (and third*) letters]1930_______ Y1931_______ Z1932_______ A1933_______ B1934_______ C1935_______ D1936_______ E1937_______ F1938_______ G1939_______ H1940_______ J1941_______ K1942_______ L1943_______ MMZ1944_______ NN1945_______ PP1946_______ RR1947_______ SS1948_______ TT1949_______ UU1950_______ WW1951_______ XX1952_______ YY1953_______ ZZ1954_______ A1955_______ B1956_______ C1957_______ D1958_______ E1959_______ F1960_______ G1961_______ H1962_______ J1963_______ K1964_______ L1965_______ M1966_______ N1967_______ P1968_______ R1969_______ S1970_______ T1971_______ U1972_______ W1973_______ X1974_______ Y1975_______ Z1976_______ I1977_______ O1978_______ Q1979_______ V1980_______ A1981_______ B1982_______ C1983_______ D1984_______ E1985_______ F1986_______ G1987_______ H1988_______ I1989_______ J1990_______ K1991_______ L1992_______ M1993_______ N1994_______ O1995_______ P1996_______ Q1997_______ R1998_______ S1999_______ T2000_______ U2001_______ W2002_______ X* the years 1943 though 1953 had double letters: ie, MM = 1943As maybe seen, the year code letters duplicate; some knowledge of when the model was introduced should resolve the actual year of manufacture.Remington owners: COPY this table to your Hard Drive……! ! another couple helpfull links:…irearm_models/…Codelist21.pdf
