I grew up in Philadelphia in the 60's/70's. My father owned an auto repair business. He would occasionally take trades in lieu of cash for a repair. One day in the 70's, he brought home a Finnwolf .308. It had a Bushnell Scope Chief 4X scope and since I was the one in the family with bad eyes, he said I could use it for hunting. I did for a couple years (never shot anything) until one day something in the action broke. I took it to Jaegers in Jenkintown, which at the time was a high end gun shop. They immediately offered me $300 just for the magazine. Of course I refused and had the rifle repaired. When I told my father about this exchange, he did some research and immediately retired the rifle from active service. He bought me a Remington M700 30-06, which I shoot to this day. About 30 years ago my father broke up his collection between my 2 brothers and I. My oldest brother got the Finnwolf. He's not a shooter so the rifle has been gathering dust ever since. Fast forward and my father passed away a year ago. I eventually inquired with my brother if he would be interested in selling me the Finnwolf. He said to just take it. So after 40 some years, the Finnwolf is back with me. It has the original peep sight back on it. The model number is VL63 and the SN is 2678. can anyone date this rifle/tell me more about it?
