I just bought this model 67a “Boys Rifle”. I believe it has a cherry wood stock?  Any idea how many were made with a cherry stock, and about what time frame was this one made?

Thanks,

Al

Hi Al,

Your rifle (based on the configuration) was made between 1957-1963.  That is as close as I can tell you without having it in hand and doing some measuring.

While the stock on the standard 67A was specified to be Walnut, a few were made with Cherry.  However, the stock for the later 67A “Boy’s Rifle” like yours was specified to be made from Cherry as standard (possibly to further reduce the weight).  So, while a Cherry stock on a standard 67A is unusual (but not rare), a Cherry stock on a Boy’s rifle like yours is common.

Hope that helps.
