How do you date the manufacture of a SR22?

When I buy one, I want the latest version. Is there a fired cartridge case that is dated? Thanks. M1911

There is a fired case with a date. But I don't think there have been any version changes except for the slide no longer saying "SR22 Pistol" (which mine does). My case is is dated 01/23/12, but I just bought the gun new a week ago.

There is a bag of test fired casings that is dated that comes in the box with the gun.

From what I gather small improvements were made to the gun on the second or third month of manufacturing to address various issues.

Thanks guys. Perhaps we need a list of partial serial numbers to match to spent case dates and see if we can make sure where we are going. And, if anyone gets a replacement take-down lever that looks different please post. Ruger is aware of the loose barrels and I'm sure is tightening them now, they added a taller spring retaining nub to the magazines for some reason and I don't read about hard mag insertion or accidental release anymore. Don't read much about jamming either. They must be sorting out the issues. I still want the latest when I get one. M1911

Mine:
360-155xx
Slide says "SR22 Pistol"
Case dated 01/23/12
Mags have longer nubs
Barrel was tight

Ejector was missing.

Functioned perfect even with the missing ejector.
Unless they are playing Mr Potator head with parts, I would think that if the slide just says SR22, it has all of the updates.

380???? That's a pretty high number for the first few weeks of sales.

Mine is a 360-153XX and was purchased in Jan/12

I think a few of these SNs will help determine which are latest production pistols. 10K pistols per month. M1911

360 series
SN 360-15,500 +/- spent case date 1/23/12
SN 360-85,000 +/- case date 7/16/12
SN 360-90,000 +/- case date 7/20/12
SN 360-94,500 +/- case date 7/31/12

361 series
SN 361-23000 +/- case date 10/3/12
SN 361-39800 +/- case date 11/8/12 Now running about 15K/16K pistols per month and probably selling them all.

How about you just buy one and tell us when it was made.
