Mine was made during WWII. Sometime later they changed the hammer from checkered to serrated around '48to '50, I think, to speed production or reduce costs. Shortly thereafter they changed from long-wood to shortwood forearms. Old Winchesters have a grace and poise that the new ones don't quite get.
