This Winchester was produced in 1939. The rifle’s serial number is 39286. It has a 24 inch octagonal barrel chambered for the 22 Long Rifle only. It has the standard front and rear sights installed. This rifle also has the Lyman tang sight installed. This tang sight may have been installed at the factory. The peep aperture is threaded for installing the disc peep sight. This rifle is in near new condition. There is a very light sign of the pump handle being pumped. There is really no sign that this rifle has been fired. The original bluing would rate a 98% or better overall condition. The stock and forend are in very fine condition with all of the factory finish intact. This Winchester has the early small pump handle which is correct for 1939. This is a very fine high condition Winchester with the early features. This rifle’s high early condition plus the octagonal barrel, being chambered for the 22 Long Rifle and the tang sight installed, really makes this Model 61 stand out! This rifle would be a stunning addition to any gun 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.
