    Some questions for the 10/22 experts

    Were the International and Finger Groove Sporter stocks made at SE Overton on inhouse in Southport?

    What year did Ruger begin stamping "Newport, NH" on their barrels?
    What about the front sight, when did they change to the more squared one?

    I have a couple of older Southport barrels with Lyman rear sights and rounded front sights, I was wondering if there was a way to date them

    Welp, I have a couple of 10/22's, shoot them as much as possible, but really don't know much about some of the questions you are asking.

    Seems to me that you could do an online search for about every answer you need.

    I agree, inter-web search should be employed.
