Supermatic Citation
Wed Aug 29, 2018 17:13

Hello Paul,

In your original post you said (copy and paste):

"I have a Hi-Standard Supermatic Citation model 108 military, serial number 1860660"

In your reply you say: "The serial number on the slide is identical to the one on the frame (1060660)". It can't be both at the same time; therefore, which one is the correct serial number? It does make a BIG difference as far as when it was made (shipped here, not "made"). 1060xxx shipped 1960, 1860xxx shipped 1968, 8 years later. Military grip guns started shipping 1965 with the 106 series. It can't be a 108 series if EITHER you gave is correct. Double check both the serial number and the Model #. If there is an "ML" preceding the serial number that's PART OF the serial number, but those didn't happen until July, 1975

My email is shown above in blue, just click on it. Email me a couple photos, particularly at least one of the serial numbers, and a good "overall" of the right side.

Slant grip serial numbers are on the right side of the slide, On the Military grip guns it's on the TOP of the slide. The serial number would have to be a LOT higher to get to the 108 series. I'm not trying to give you a hard time, just what you're reporting isn't consistent nor fit what you're describing. Photos will help in working this puzzle out.
