I have a very nice, near new Model 67.  Can you give me an idea when it was manufactured?  See pictures.

Thanks,

Hi Al,

Assuming the semi-beavertail blunt forend stock is original to the rifle, your 67 was made between 1938-1941.  There were no other significant changes to the 67 during that period so I am afraid that is as close an estimate as I can give you. 

Hope that helps.

JWA, thanks for the assessment. That’s is what I kind of figured based on limited research that I did. How would I tell if the stock is original to the rifle? Both are in similar excellent condition.

Hi Al,

There is no positive way to tell for sure but as long as the rifle has not been refinished and the stock and barrel vintage match (as yours do) and the finish condition is consistent I would assume it is original to the rifle and has not been swapped from another 67.
