    My dad has an A5, serial # somewhere around 43,000. The only other marking close to the serial number is V2.

    Does anyone know what the V2 means, and when SN 43k would've been built? I know it was before 1941, b/c it was made in Belgium, but can't seem to find much info about it.

    Thanks.

    That said 387000-438000 for that time period...Dad's gun in 43,000 not 430,000. Does that mean his gun dates back to 1903-1939?
