Hi I just got a model 81 in excellent condition , I'm just curious when it was made.
Serial number is: 1863x and there is a KK onthe barrel jacket.
Can anyone help?? thanks from this Old CANUCK! Jim:confused:

Using 'BLACKPOWDERX', I come up with May of 1941. The 'K' repeats itself in 1963.
Now if I could recall when the 740 Woodsmasters took the 81's place, I think before '63 though.
That gun is the Northern deerhunters dream! Close behind it is the 141 pump which is what I carry out here in Western Oregon.
My best guess, JT
