ITEM – 2043 – SOLD – Winchester Model 61 Second Year Production 22 Short Octagonal Barrel


Item Number 2043 Category

This Winchester was produced in 1933. This is a second year production gun! The rifle’s serial number is 4606. It has the 24 inch octagon barrel chambered for the 22 Short only. This is not a gallery gun but a standard production gun at the time of production. The bore is in minty condition. The sights are original to this gun. This rifle does show some very light pump action wear. There is very little sign that this gun has been fired. The slight wear is on the underside of the slide operating rail. The original bluing would rate a strong 98% overall condition. The stock and early style pump handle are in near new condition. The wood retains all of the original finish. This is a very fine stunning looking Model 61 in the rare 22 Short only loading! Being a very early production rifle also adds to this rifle’s charm!
