Thank you very much for the information. I have another question regarding the stock. It is not the plain wood stock, it appears to be stained Tiger Maple. The marking on the pistol grip and buttplate look exactly like the proof marks on the barrel. Any thoughts ? Thanks.

First, I’ve found this post very useful. Thank you for everyone’s contributions.

I inherited my grandfather’s 721 earlier this year upon my dad’s passing. From what I could glean, my grandfather’s 721 30-06 was manufactured in September, 1948. Could someone with more expertise than me (of which I have none) either verify, or correct my assessment, and perhaps offer any other details that these photos might reveal?

Thank you in advance. I have lots of questions like these, which I did not have the opportunity to ask my dad about before he passed.

Thanks for the entry.
It fits in our list right here
439xx 722-300S D/TT 9/48 rear ring not tapped
442xx 721-3006 D/TT 9/48 rear ring is/was tapped
452xx 721-3006 W/TT 8/48

The different wood tip is an alteration.
Can you compare the screw holes in the rear receiver ring to the ones in the front ring. If you can tell that they are "factory" drilled appearing cleanly machined like the front holes, or they are rougher in appearance if drilled aftermarket, we would like to know. Aftermarket holes may not show the same blueing appearance.

281xx 300Savage is one of the earliest 722 on our list. A=Mar, TT=1948.

Other marks are proofs, and assembly marks
