How old is my UV7BK

As title says, it has an edge pro and serial starts with 25**** which doesn't help like 91**** would.

Thanks people.

I think that the # means your Universe is from 1992 and only the first digit is indicative of the year of production.

Also the trem you have is called lo-pro EDGE 7 from Low Profile and has nothing to do with the EDGE Pro 7 that was introduced this year for the very first time.

It is definately not a 92'.

If it's a silver dot it's a 97', if it's a green dot it's a late run, 94' or 95' [possibly later offshore]

Just my opinion, I'm not always 100% correct, but you cannot take the first digit "2" and consider that an indication of year with a 250k plate [which is what dex was doing above]. I could be a 92' but will take a whole lot more neck plate # data to figure out. They were made until 96'. [at least distributed until then in the US with none in 95', more than likely offshore available then]
