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!

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.
