    39312 is the serial number

    M8 = made in 1968.

    Thank you for the help. The Browning website only showed what serial numbers looked like after 1969. Also, according to Wikipedia, my BAR does not have iron sites (which it does). Any idea on the value of this gun? It is in VG condition with almost no blueing wear and very minimal stock dings.

    Thanks again.

    Many BAR's from 1968 had iron sights, flip up rear I believe.
