I picked up an older 760 this morning. It holds a little air but needs a complete seal kit which I will order. It is an all complete self cocker and has the brass bolt, metal sight post at the barrel end and receiver but has the heavy plastic stock and forearm. It does not have a serial number like my 1976 model 760. How can you tell the vintage without the serial number? Thanks

I also have a 760 with no serial number, but mine is a all metal receiver, all wood stock version. The serial number should be on the borrom of the receiver..correct? Well regardless there are no numbers on the reciver anywhere. Any historians offer any insight? Any idea what year this might be from?

At least I think that was the date. There's actually a federal law that mandates this.

The "heavy plastic" is styrene and that means the gun was manufactured in the early seventies.
