This Winchester Gallery Gun was produced in 1947. The rifle’s serial number is 70747. It has the rare octagon barrel chambered for the 22 Short cartridge. Most Gallery guns were fitted with round barrels. Having a Gallery gun with a octagon barrel is a real find! The bore is in fine condition, bright with no issues. The area where the pump handle works back and forth shows blue loss. The receiver also has the Winchester Logo stamped on the left side of the frame. The sights are the standard sights for this model. The original bluing would rate a 96% overall condition. The stock and pump handle retain all of the original factory finish. There is no cracks or blemishes on the wood. The action is tight with no issues. The take down feature is snug with no play. This is a very fine condition Gallery gun that has seen light use. Being a octagon barrel Gallery gun is a real find for the collector! Here is one of these rare Gallery guns in very fine condition that would be hard to “top”!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
