    Of the left side of your XSE? Curious as to the location of it's take-down notch.

    Well shoot, I can check it out at Colt's web site.

    Thanks Bruce, nice lookin' piece!
    Notch is in "newer" location. Is it a 1990s gun, or more recent?

    Actualy when I bought it, it had a burr right there and I hit it with a file. That is what the shinny spot you see is.

    The serial is etched and not roll-stamped, correct?

    Thanks again Bruce

    Doesn't make any sense at all to me, why Colt's using two methods.

    I thought they had too, and then went back to roll-marking. Maybe it's just on the Enhanced models they use etching. My 2000, 2002 and 2005, all are roll-marked (and of course the earlier examples).
