    I recently purchased a Finnwolf S#10468. Was wondering if someone could date it? Thx.

    The Factory Records Service the club provides has data for the VL63 or Finnwolf up to serial number 10500, so why not just click on that at the upper left of this page and request the info?

    Showtime: Is your Finnwolf marked "VL63" or "VL73" on the receiver?

    Thanks, I was curious about that. Later Finnwolfs are marked "VL73" in the records but I have yet to see an actual rifle with anything other than "VL63" on the receiver.

    Question for you, have you ever taken a Finnwolf apart? I looked up the break down online, doesn't look too bad, looks like I'll need a punch set and flat head. I want to inspect and lube as needed. Is lubing part of the maintenance like other firearms esp in the lever action, was just use some rem oil!
