1952 if memory serves correctly. However now I want a 1955 model 88 Winchester 308. The first year of the mod 88. It’s a slippery slope.I'll be darned. I thought .308 came along a while after that. Didn't know it was quite that old. Just read it was released as a commercial cartridge two years before the military officially adopted the 7.62 NATO.
I've had a couple of those over the years. Both .308's. One was a later one with the fugly basket weave impressions in the stock. Oddly enough, it had been a SWAT team rifle in a city in so. Calif. Before they had fancier equipment. The other one was an earlier piece, I'm thinking 1960. True checkered stock. This one had a police connection, too, it was an "evidence gun." Remember Lieutenant Tragg on the Perry Mason series? He'd get on the witness stand and when asked if he was familiar with a gun in evidence, he would point out his initials that had been placed on it. Well, this one had the initials, plus some dried flecks of blood and human tissue, circled in magic marker. It had a couple of mechanic issues, that's when I discovered that Mod 88 parts were hard to find and dear when found. I did resolve the problems.However now I want a 1955 model 88 Winchester 308.

How often do you have to blow it? LoLThey just released the Raspberry Pi 4B with 8GB of RAM and finally got USB boot working, so I ordered a second one (already have one of the 4GB ones from when they first released) and a Flirc case for it. Not in the plans, but I'm a sucker for gadgets and need to update my emulation setup.

Okay, maybe it won't replace my main emulation setup as I really like it. It's a Raspberry Pi 0W I built into a NES game cartridge (mine is Super Mario Bros). Not mine, but this is what it kinda looks like:

Tinkering with computers isn't quite as expensive as tinkering with guns so that means I'm being frugal, right?
Tavor, you won’t have to wait a year for...Ok boys! Iwi tavor or suspressor?
