Default Old Rifle

I just looked up the age of my old Remington 700. Turns out it was made in Oct. of 1965. It doesn't look a day over 30. Thinking about having a 40th birthday party for it, I just put on a new scope so that will be its present.

Icedragon the Marlins may be like the Rems.. They have a two or three letter marking on the barrel that you can look up on a website and tell the month and year of manufacture.
