How can you tell the age of a Miroku?

There’s no way to tell. Model can be almost figured out from looking at the action, though there seems to be some overlap. The age can be fairly close if you look at the proof marks. It’s Pre-1975 if it’s not got letter at the end of the SN denoting the year. Just done the same exercise with mine! You can post now and register later.
