It's probably 2"x3" and right on one of the corners of the box. It says "Safety Checked June 04, 2012". I'm assuming that its a Cabelas sticker.

Build date on mine is 10-21-2008, still looks like a new one. That will change this week sometime when it gets a new barrel, birdcage, BX 25 X2, and an Archangel kit.

From the SN, it looks like it was on of the first ones made in 2012. Based off of Ohio Ogre's post, we know there were at least 5,000 made in 2012.

So.......who has the oldest Charger here?

According to the serial number, mine appears to be manufactured in 2013.

Never wanted a Charger - until they were discontinued.

I am so busy shooting everything else. I normally take a couple
of Glocks, 3 or 4 Mark III's, and 2 or 3 10/22's. After shooting
those, it takes all my energy to load everything in the truck.
Also now that I have had it so long and it is still new unfired
in the box, I want to keep it NIB to resell later.
