I have read that only the first ones in 1989 had green inserts. Then went to black by 1990. When I got it,it was new in box but after 20 years and being in my early 20's then I didnt keep the box. BUT it has been kept in the safe along with the 2,10-22 rugers my dad bought at walmart for him and myself when i was a kid. They were green laminate stocks,stainless. His is still new in box unfired in tje plastic bag still. I squirrel hunted with mine some growing up . I love stainless rugers. I never hunted with my m77 because I figured the glare of the sun off the stainless would scare the deer off.
Older post but have a question for OP.
Are you saying that your gun has a “green” stock? ( not just the green inserts)
