Errrr, not of the top of my head.....I'd have to look in the John Walter books to confirm.

I recall the non-carbine 80 was out way before then, as was the HW35 and 35E, but not sure about the 'Safari'(?).

Is the stock laminated?

It is a Beech stock with green stain Gambo.the later Jubilee HW35 KLS has a blue laminate stock & the rare HW80K  Bavaria has corn/brown laminate.

I've seen HW35's with green laminated stocks, but don't ever recall seeing one with a plain beech stock stained green. :-\

The 35 Safari had a matt finish to the action ,the sales pitch called it Parkerised.

I think you have seen the 55 Jubilee or KLS Laminate which is blueish green & black .The 95 had a green laminate as well.

IJ has a Safari in his pics. ;)
