Collectors have identified so many detail variations, that it's hard to know where to draw the line between one that is vintage, and one that is just old.
I got a 10/22 for Christmas, and couldn't remember which Christmas it was, so went to some collector sites, looking for serial number info.
"Early" guns had walnut stocks (really early guns had stocks made by a subcontractor, but stock production was later moved in-house), aluminum buttplates, Lyman flip sights, and other details which changed over the years.
I certainly prefer walnut to birch, and metal to plastic.
