I don't know much about the 63, but I've been interested in 22's lately (probably all we're going to be able to shoot here in Kalifornia before long) and on a total impulse buy I picked up this cherry little Model 63 (probably paid too much, but that's ok).

SN 10130 dates it at 1936 and has Lyman tang and front sight (I think 5B?). 23" barrel and all other features look standard.

Here are some pictures.

That is a very nice, early 63!  The early ones are hard to find in that condition, you did well.

Thanks for the nice pictures.

Very nice! Love those early 63's with the rust blued receivers.
