N shoulder stamp
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:14:20 PM »

Hi all,

I've got a GN Oblivion that only has one shoulder stamp and that's N - does anyone know what that stands for?

Thanks,
James

I believe one of stamps indicates the approx year of manufacture, and if there is another then it is for the maker, at least that is what GN told me recently. My Pro Performance has a V which they used until last year and have now moved to W.

So guess that N was a few years ago?

Thanks @Chalkie - by my powers of deduction that makes it around 9 years old though - were they even making the Oblivion back then?

There was a model previous to this that I had with plain white grip and slightly different stickers

Bingo. Thanks Ed and Jimmy.

Has it really been that long since they looked like that. Jeez, time flies!
