Actions are manufactured and often stored for months, maybe more than a year before they are assembled into rifles. It is quite possible the action was manufactured in 1962, but not assembled into a rifle until later.

I've known of manufacturers scrounging up spare parts laying around in warehouses and assembling "special" runs of rifles with whatever parts were on hand. Ruger has done that several times with guns that never show up in a catalog.
