This Late Model Winchester was produced in 1962. The rifle’s serial number is 340828. This is the standard model with the 24 inch round barrel chambered to shoot the 22 Short, Long And Long Rifle. This rifle shows no sign of being fired. This Winchester has the grooved receiver top for mounting a scope. This rifle may have been assembled, most likely for display in a gun shop. The factory bluing would rate a 99% or better condition. The only slight spot of blue lightness is under the barrel on the left side where the forend would rub the barrel during working the action. This is very faint and hardly noticeable at all. The Stock and forend are in new condition. The plastic butt plate shows sign of oxidation due to long storage. That oxidation is easily wiped off. The original box is in fair condition. The cardboard receiver sleeve is missing in this box. The hanging tag and instruction booklet is present. The wrapping paper is also present. The yellow end label is there and serial numbered to this rifle. There is a overwrite on the label saying SAVE. This is a very fine New Condition Winchester Model 61 with it’s original box. Guns in their original boxes are not commonly seen on the collector market! Here is a fine example of a late model Winchester with the box!

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.
