Flite King / Riot 12GA
Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:30

Hello Sir,

I believe this gun to be a flite king, maybe a riot model but am unsure. I was hoping to get a year of manufacture on this as well as model. The gun does not specify a model on it, nor does it say "riot" like some others i have seen, on the barrel. Here's what I can find.

Serial #: 3208893
Date code: FS

On the left of the date code there are two other markings. There is a funny looking shape that resembles a W, and "BHSP" in a circle.

It is marked High Standard Hamden, Conn. USA and PROOF TESTED-12GA 2 3/4" CHAMBER on other side. These are all the markings the gun has.

Any info would be great and I greatly appreciate your time.

Thank you!
