This Winchester was produced in 1947. The rifle’s serial number is 75558. This rifle has the octagonal barrel chambered for the 22 Short only. The bore is bright with sharp lands. The loading port is cut out for the 22 Short cartridge only. The sights are original to this gun. This rifle has seen some light use and wear. This gun has been well cared for throughout the years. The only real wear is where the pump handle is operated. The original bluing would rate a 96% or better condition. The stock and forend have no cracks or other damage. The wood retains all of the original finish. The action works smoothly with no issues. This is a very nice clean condition Model 61 with the highly collectable octagonal barrel. Being a 22 Short and the condition adds to the appeal of this rifle!

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.
