Was 1938 the first year of production for the model 62?    terryLaugh

Production started in March of 1932 for the M62.

Per Schwings book, that would be June of 1932, fourth month of production….. yes, very early.

I thought you blokes may be interested, I have a nice old 62 Serial number 74. That would be the first week of manufacture I suppose. They are a great rifle. Keep up the good work, Michael.

Hello, from The Twilight Zone.

Just a curiosity, question ?

Did the WACA, use Schwings data for the Model 61 ?

If so, I would imagine from Polishing Room Records ?

Because looking it up on this site, it’s the same date.

The Resources here are awesome for MFG Date. Also other advice.

Enjoy the Evening, hokie
