Not sure I'm reading the chart right. Is PWW marking June 1950?
Need to find a magazine lock part and all seem to say you need to know if early or late manufacture? What date would be the early/late model time???? Thanks.

    I have three 511's and they're dated 1947, 1951 and 1953 and they all have the late magazine lock part. They started making them in 1939, to
    around 1963, but I don't know what year started the later production.

    Your PWW date code is correct for 1950.

    Looking down into the stock, right behind the magazine cutout, if there is one screw hole, it's the late model, two holes (one behind the other)is the early model.
