    well, I feel like I'm talking to myself here, but I found out that it IS a 1959 model. I guess the "expert" at Browning missed this one. he was a nice guy, but I hate getting fed bad information. oh well. I'm just glad to finally get it figured out.

    The "historian" is wrong. The rifle is a first year production Safari Grade.

    Joe, Your rifle is a Browning Safari Grade made in 1963. The letter "z" denotes a Safari Grade. it is based on the Sako L579 action.
    Not sure what else you would like to know.
