    Can't find an exact date, but the Ranger was made from 93-99.

    Ayup.

    Also, that young lady's a keeper. If she's buying you guns, don't let her go!

    Hi M70Ranger.......welcome to TFF.

    I agree with JohnK3.....that young lady is a keeper!

    My Model 70 list only goes up to 1981. The ending number that year was G1537134.

    Hello Ranger! Glen Gardner, eh? Did you grow up there? I spent my early years outside of Clinton and used to shoot in the Round Valley Reservoir before they put any water in it! I must be getting old. My school bus used to drive through Round Valley.

    Thanx PlanoTx for narrowing it down to 6 years for me. So its a fairly new gun. And yes i agree she is definitely a keeper, she paid 375 including tax for the rifle. It has an older Redfield Tracker 3-9x40 scope on "gasp" See-Thru mounts (i despise them). That will be changed shortly. But thank you to all who helped out and replied, it was much appreciated.

    To dvl,
    No i did not grow up here but I do live right across from Spruce Run and have been to Round Valley numerous times. Hard to believe there was a time when you can drive through round valley. The clinton/glen gardner/high bridge area is very beautiful and more laid back than North eastern (bergen co) NJ where i used to live. I love it here.
