Bert, it’s 33998. Does that equate to 1952? It is a deluxe with side mounted Lyman peep, and has the sling swivels, which I believe were standard on the deluxe? Thanks, 021
It is either late 1951 or early 1952. I suspect that it will have a “51” marked barrel though. Yes, the sling swivels were standard on the Model 71 Special. I found and surveyed this rifle when it was listed by the Cabela’s Gunn Library in Acworth, GA.
