I know they shipped the manlicher carbine in the AIII and the AV but I am strictly talking about the L61r branded actions.
Hell, for the kind of $$$ being suggested you’d think there’d be at least a few bolt photos, including proof they match each rifle by showing the underside with the last three engraved digits.Probably Jeffy1,
when your selling something though, the pictures should show the complete article.
the answer is No. L61R with the third locking lug rifles were made mostly in 1971, with bleedover into 1972 and perhaps '73. The 1973 date is just speculation on my part. There are a few "Bofors" marked L61R full stocks from the 1960s (there are pics here somewhere on this site), but those rifles are super scarce and really hard to find. There are lots of L61R / AIII / AV full stock rifles, but only a few (as shown here from the Finnmark letter) that are L61R 3-lug with shiny stocks. That's the first thing that I look for.....is it an L61R and does it have a polyurethane stock?....if it does, chances are pretty good that it has the third locking lug and made in 1971.My question is was 1971 the only year that the L61r carbine configuration imported to the US?
the one I have is real nice.....I'd be all over your offer if I didn't. BTW, that .25/06 full stock NIB for sale, I'd be all over it if I didn't have one already. Where else you going to find one?...My .25 has an orange stock, really really nice.BTW, I have an extra 300 win mag carbine I could be talked out of.
