    Having recently purchased a second hand Ripley AR5s, I am trying to find out any history and a date of manufacture if possible
    The action has a serial No 244 stamped on it.

    It shoots fantastic !

    Hi John
    Had a AR5 many moons ago and thought Steve etched the name of the original owner onto the trigger unit along with the date of manufacture, hope this may help.

    I think that is only for the AR5 (SN 21) as mine has my name on it but not on the AR5s. Will check when I get home to find the SN of that.

    Thanks for the help

    The only markings on the action are the serial No 244 and on the other side is the letter "P" which appears to have been scratched into the metal (not stamped in)

    Thanks guys.
