ITEM 1993-SOLD- Winchester Model 61 First Year Production In 22 W.R.F. With Octagonal Barrel


Item Number 1993 Category

This Winchester was produced in 1932. The rifle’s serial number is 2554. This gun is a first year production Model 61! It has the very desirable 24 inch octagonal barrel chambered for the great 22 W.R.F. cartridge. The bore is in very fine condition. This rifle has been fired and very lightly used. The original factory Rust Bluing would rate a strong 98% condition. The stock and pump handle have all of the original finish intact. There is no cracks or other issues with the wood. This early rifle has the correct small pump handle and reinforced magazine locking lip. These early parts were used for a very short time. The sights are original to this rifle. This is a great looking rifle! It is very hard to find early Model 61’s that are in this fine of condition! This was a popular gun and saw much use through the years. This rifle is certainly a collector grade in this fine of condition! This gun would be a wonderful addition to any collection today!
