Browning blr
 
How do u determine date of manufacturing? And what the best way to prevent rust inbetween the stock and the barrel. I'll post pics if you need em

Pics are always good;) serial # gives you a rough time frame as does certain characteristics from certain manufacturing periods. Easiest way to prevent it is to not touch the metal and keep it lightly oiled

Yep serial number will tell age, an oil will protect the metal, just take the stock off an buff with 0000 steel wool to remove any surface rust an oil it lightly an put it back together.
