This Winchester Shotgun was produced in 1957. The shotgun’s serial number is 264808. This gun has the 24 inch factory counter bored barrel. The receiver has the grooved top for mounting a scope. The bore is in bright minty condition. The barrel has no provision for a rear sight. The barrel is properly marked 22 Long Rifle For Shot Only. The front sight is the German Silver shotgun bead sight. This shotgun shows very light use. There is a slight rub mark on both sides of the barrel where the forend is pumped to work the action. The original bluing would rate a 98% condition or better. The stock and forend are in fine condition with no issues. This stock is the late model stock with the plastic butt plate with the Winchester logo. This is the first year of these late style stocks. This Winchester is a collector grade shotgun! These Model 61 Shotguns are considered rare and hard to find today! Here is a fine condition late model shotgun for the discriminating collector!

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.
