Hi all,
i shot a Galaxy and i´m not sure about the right reg. It says 50009 on the tail and 5009 on the nose and i´ve noticed that most of the C-5s here have a reg. with a praefix (if that is the right word...)like 87-0031. how do i find out the right one?

thanks for your help,

Denis

50009 = 85-0009 : '5' > '85' = fiscal year 1985 is normal.
It would be unusual if it clashes with other years (10 years either side)

The Dutch "Scramble" website has a very detailed database of all air arms and their equipment. It is at www.scramble.nl/dbmil.htm
