Firearm Serial Numbers

Firearms made at Springfield Armory after 1865 were given unique serial numbers for identification purposes. Before 1865, serial numbers were not given to National Armory Weapons, even though production began at Springfield Armory in 1795 with the Model 1795 Flintlock Musket.

Below you will find a compiled list of production numbers for different firearms with the year and sometimes month it was produced. Select the firearm to see the serial numbers.
