Default Date of Mfg. by Serial Number

I checked the FAQs and was unable to find the "date of manufacture by serial number". Can someone point me in the right direction? The s/n on the receiver begins with HX. Thanks.

There's a build date code list in the FAQs, determined by the prefix letter(s).

Thanks Guys, I appreciate the help. In that mfgr. date list, it seems to indicate the gun may have been built in 1961 or 2007. Am I reading the tables wrong?

After 1986 they started over on the letters but added either H or N before it.

Key is Two letter prefix starting with N or H, second letter..... Anything made prior to 1987 was made by H&R Inc(1953-'86) or H&R Arms(<1953), 1987 on was NEF or H&R.

Thanks Tim, that cleared it right up for me. Had my gun been built in 1961, it would have been serialized "Z"xxxxxxx, not "HZ"xxxxxxx. Appreciate the help.
