It must not have the bolt hold open feature, I doubt its worn off because this rifle definitely hasn't seen much action.
OK now for the age of the rifle...no serial # to be found but I did find a 2-letter code. It has an "IJ" stamped on the barrel.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Sorry I missed this...
the IJ code is September of 1966
A gun should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.
