Serial Number Range. The 'U' under the serial number is a factory inspectors stamp. In the mid-1960's, Federal law demanded that all firearms have a unique serial number. At that time Colt started using letters as a prefix or suffix in the serial number. In these guns, the letter is part of the numbers. If the original box that your revolver came in is black cardboard and features Samuel Colt's portrait and signature on the label, then your revolver is the second generation 'F' series. If you have an 1851 Navy revolver with a serial number from 4201 to 25099 or a Dragoon numbered 20901 to 25099, then they are 'C' Series models.
