This Winchester was produced in 1955. The shotgun’s serial number is 223006. This shotgun was a special order gun as by that time these shotguns were out of standard production. It has the standard 24 inch barrel. The front sight is the shotgun nickel silver bead. There is no provision for a rear sight. The receiver is the grooved top style. The counter bore is 8 inches. This Smooth Bore is marked 22 Long Rifle for Shot Only. This shotgun is very slightly used, There is some rub marks on the magazine tube and operating rod. The original bluing would rate a 98% overall condition. The stock and pump handle retain all of the original varnish. There is no damage to the wood or cracks. This is a very fine condition Winchester Model 61 Shotgun! These counter bored guns are quite rare and highly sought after! Here is a great looking shotgun 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.
