This is the EXACT same rifle that I purchased for $100.00at a garage sale, like you I am not sure as it's age, however previous owner does not seem to have shot it much if at all! It's rusty and the bolt seems to be very dirty casuing it not to seat. I have tried searching for any information as I plan to disassemble and clean.I am 62 with bifocals, in pretty good shape. Thanks for the warning that it kicks like a bull. I am very interested in any information you may have.About the nasty kick with 180 grainers, what is a Packmayer Decellerator?
Thank you for any info you may be able to share.
