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!

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.
