Hey everyone! I just got my first 3006 and I couldn't be more excited! Ive been researching this gun since I got it on trade for an old broken down snowmobile(worth about $500). I know it was made in Japan in the early 80's by howa and that it had a recall(in the process of shipping out). However I cant seem to find the version of mine anywhere. No pictures online or anything. The thing that is throwing me off is the coloration of the wood stock and how the wood stock runs all the way to the end of the barrel. I was wondering if maybe someone put an after market stock on it or not. I also have a 50's 60's FN .243 Win I cant seem to pin a date on with the serial #. I'll include pictures of both and look forward to hearing from some of you guys. THANKS!
