Bert # 834059. 98%++. 2-A Lyman tang, bbl. rear sight slot plugged with Winchester plug, front site, Lyman #5. Sights appear to be original. Match the condition of the rifle. Man,  this is a beautiful M06.   Big Larry.  Oh, and a plug for HLV Fine Guns. Good folks.

Thank you

Yes… October 1938.

Is it a 22 Short, Long & Long Rifle, or a 22 Short only?

Bert, if this survey is still ongoing, here’s the dope on my 62A:

S/N 212849 lower tang, same on bottom of receiver/barrel assembly foward of trigger guard. 

Left side of barrel rollmark identifies model as “62A”.  

Walnut stock and forearm, 17 grooves.  23″ barrel. 

In case I go under a bus: rifle came to me in 2000 via Gunbroker with funky incorrect open rear and Lyman front bead, both discarded. Replaced front with Brownell repro Sourdough, installed vintage Lyman #12SS rear slot blank. Installed new Marbles Improved tang peep on upper tang.  Excellent bore and mechanicals. Very crisp external steel and wood, professional refinishes done by or for a predecessor are very close to factory, not garish or destructive. 

Before close inspection by someone with knowledge and experience, first impression is a 99% gun. It’s a fine, accurate shooter but not more than that.

TMI maybe but I’ll be 80 in June and want to keep this little rifle honest. 

Thanks to you and your cohort for doing the heavy lifting on these surveys

Best,

- Bill

Bill,

The survey only includes the Model 62/62A rifles that were assembled using late production Model 90 receiver frames (serial numbers > 713200).  Most of them found thus far have serial numbers in the 850000 – 854000 range.

Like LeCarre’s George Smiley, I need to learn to read everything twice.

I’ve often noticed that some replies to long threads reveal clearly that the poster hasn’t bothered to read the preceding comments even once.

I’m sure new members can be a cross to bear. Mea culpa.

Not referring to you or new members, just those who blurt out something without considering what’s already been said on the same subject.  Happens on all on-line boards.  The thread on those fictitious “.30-03” Model 70s is a prime example.

Clarence,  Understood. I have a concern (as a shade tree preservationist) not to inadvertently contribute to the “fraud and ringer” market. I’ll get off this survey and set up another topic
