Hello Friends

I am looking to buy a .315 rifle and I have got some pictures from seller... Can anybody decode the year of manufacture?

I can see ‘OFT-IN-2016-17’ is written on the barrel.

Hi netwit,
If you want to purchase an Indian made Rifle,
Go for the new 30.06.
The Stock and Mechanism is far better.
I personally love the .315 Cartridge.
But can’t compare it in the Indian scenario.
The IOF .315 Rifle for some reason now, is not as good as the 30.06.
Somehow the .315 is not manufactured the way they were.
There is an issue with the Bolt and Extraction.
Regards,
Jr.
