No need to do that.
Gregory_K is right, and you should find it stamped on the barrel where he suggested
side note: did it have the original carrier with it (to your knowledge)?
If so, you can narrow it down a bit. In Feb/March 2005, they began installing FA (M16) carriers. Before that, it will be the semi-circle AR15 carrier.
That could give you at least have a "before or after" date reference.
