    Fiocchi GFL headstamp question.

    I'm trying to determine the probable age of some Fiocchi 25acp ammo. The headstamp is GFL 6.35 and it has some light corrosion on it. It belongs to a friend who says he bought it at a gun show, loose in a plastic bag, about 2 years ago. I believe it's much older than that and is the cause of some malfuntions in his pistol. I know GFL is the Italian headstamp. does anyone know when or if they stopped selling that headstamp in the USA after they opened their factory here and started using the FIOCCHI stamp?

    They met/became NATO-spec in '89 - '90. I'm guessing it was made BEFORE then.
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -
