    Re: Model 80E

    Hello utbrowningman – If it has a metal trigger guard and finger grooves along the side of the stock – it was made in 1935-36. If metal but no grooves, then 1937-38. In 1939 (last year for the 80E) the trigger guard went to plastic and the stock was totally restyled & continued this “fat”look until after WW2 (when it got slimmed down much like today’s version). The “E” indicates the deluxe version (later known as “DL”) which featured the peep sight & hooded front. The pre-war rifles like yours are getting pretty scarce. It’s good to hear they’re still out there. Better to appreciate the history (especially family style) and avoid the urge to “restore” or “fix it up”. GoodLuck - RounderRick

    According to what you have stated, it is a 35-36. However, it does not have the hooded front site, only a post-type site. Maybe it was replaced. Thanks for the info.
