Curious when these “counter aids” were offered by Winchester?  They hold a Model 61 or 42 perfectly.  Looking for solid information, not opinions… thanks.https://i.imgur.com/2KOFXmO.jpgImage Enlarger

I’m guessing ballpark here, after WWII thru to the 1970s. Looks like injection molded plastic, which didn’t really come into use until after WWII. 

Never seen that specific stand before, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Nice piece.

Sincerely,

I’ve seen them before, guessing from the ’60s, when many bad things began to happen in this country.  Don’t see its advantage over a simple 3 piece wooden stand, which could be made in the factory’s own wood-working shop & shipped knocked-down.  Somebody’s bright idea of “new & different,” like the post-64 guns.
