Wouldn't it make more sense to provide a BB count for the upgrades/damage instead of date?

I can't remember date, so that's what I'm doing, but it does make more sense to me anyway...

Not only have I forgotten dates, after checking the Crosman web-site my POShotty is not listed under their product line anymore so I couldn't find a model number.
