This Winchester was produced in 1958! The rifle’s serial number is 285096. The rifle has the standard 24 inch barrel that is chambered for the 22 Winchester Magnum cartridge. This serial number is really early for this cartridge! The first official announcement of the production and availability of this 22 Magnum was 1960. This rifle has the standard sights installed. The receiver also has the grooved top for scope mounting. This rifle has seen very little use or being fired. The original bluing would rate a 98% or better overall. The stock and pump handle retain all of the original finish. There are no blemishes on the wood. This gun is in very fine condition showing hardly any handling. The barrel lettering is also of the very early style. The bore marking is -22 WMRF- This lettering was used for a very short time. Here is a highly collectable early 22 Magnum in wonderful condition that would be a prized addition to any collection!

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.
