Greetings,

I have a Unique DES/69 that "mostly" looks like the parts list.

My pistol has an adjustable trigger (loosen two screws and it slides forth and back). The parts list shows it as one piece (no adjustment for length). Which is the newer design?

Looking at my rear sight assembly, the end has a radius that fits nicely into a matching slot with a radius. The parts list show a rear sight with a square end and the receiver having a slot milled straight through. Again, which is the newer design?

Is there a way to date these pistols based on the Serial Number on the frame?

Cheers,

Dave

Hi David, the earliest version of the des69 had a fixed trigger mounted in the frame. The second version has the trigger blade mounted on a slotted round bar and thus adjustable for length of pull. Mine is this form and I purchased it new in 1976 -the serial number is in the 731000 range. As I recall the final version had a straight blade on a mostly similar base unit but the trigger guard was pushed out in a fashion much like used on the later 'U' series guns. That's all I can give you.

Cheers Jim

Greetings Jim,

Many thanks for the information.

Mine is serial 732xxx, so I suspect it is about the same vintage as yours.

Cheers,

Dave

Right you are David! Enjoy it. While I have half a dozen other 22s available it remains one of my favourites.

Cheers!
