Browning 22 Help Please

My grandpa was given a browning .22 LR about 20 years ago from a 80 year old man who said he got in when he was a young boy.

It is mine now and I am trying to date this gun and keep reaching deadens.
it is Belgium
the only numbers I can find are T51 and 606 beneath that on the breach and T 49 275 on the inside barrel when gun is taken apart. on the stock i find t9275 where you load the shells

Brother this is the type of post that requires a picture if you want an answer.

Paintings were made to look at, and guns were made to be shot. If you aren't going to use them as they are intended for, get rid of them and buy a Picasso.

If it's the Browning .22 Auto takedown RIFLE (below), it was most likely made between 1956 (when production began) and 1961.

1956-61 was AFAIK the only period that Browning .22 Auto's had a "T" SN prefix.
