I bought my Mod. 72 Deluxe when I was 14 back in 1974 from JC Penney. I bought it with money I earned trapping muskrats. The one thing that I haven't seen on any sites is, when I bought the gun, the stock wasn't finished. Not sure if this was the standard way the deluxe was sold. My dad suggested using linseed oil to finish it. I hand rubbed the oil into the stock as may dad instructed. It turned out a beautiful blond wood that fits so well with the silver. I have carried this rifle in the woods since I was 14. I have many guns in my collection, but this is one of my favorites. Wish I could post a picture, but not sure how to on this format.
