I have a stainless steel 62 LAR and a blued 62 LAR. They are both fine shooters. The wood is Brazilian imbeuia hardwood. I personally like tis hardwood.

Makes you scratch your head, why did they only make these fine little rifles for only one year?

The ones I have seen ranged from Mfg dates of fall of 2005 to the end of 2006. They are extremely nice. Iíve been lucky enough to acquire several through the years.

I have the blued model 62 LA or LAR or whatever the lever action is called and while it's nice, it isn't that nice. People, I think are fonder of things which are rare, disregarding actual quality and tend to hype things up to make others who can't find one, think it's greater than it is. At least I employ this tactic with mine and my friends.

it isn't the prettiest gun in the world, the wood is barely over ugly, and the checkering was inadvertently achieved when an employ at taurus clamped the rifle into a cheap bench vise. The checkering is almost.. ok forget the almost. the checkering is laughable.

Still, if anyone has a good deal on a stainless model. let me know!

In these days of Zamac and plastic, Taurus should make another run of these for guys who appreciate blued or stainless steel and real walnut.

Forget the useless safety and waffle-iron checkering. If you canít do genuine checkering, leave it smooth.

Iíd like to see a 20Ē barrel so it matches up with my Winchester 9422, Henry Golden Boy and Uberti Silverboy.
