Another 572 Date and Finish Question



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently bought a 572 with an original Weaver 22 scope in excellent original condition at a gun show. It needed cleaning up as it had obviously been in storage for a long time and the barrel and bolt were heaving greased. Upon cleaning everything came out shiny bright. It is an older gun without a serial number. The barrel has the anchor, a B, an upside down W and a Y. I am assuming that the relevant marks are B for January and the Y for 1974. But what could the upside down W refer to?
Also, I took what appeared to be a scratched shellacked finish off the butt and pump grip. The butt is a lighter wood, maple-like, and not the darker walnut I have seen elsewhere. The pump grip however was a darker mahogany like specie. It was apparently made lighter with a top finish of some kind. Has anyone seen this? thanks

Shall I say 65 was a vintage year? It should have the longer barrel and the smaller sights. I had a 1968 plain model 572 that I gave to my son that was really nice. It should shoot very well so all I can say is enjoy.
