This Winchester was produced in 1953. The rifle’s serial number is 192131. It has the standard round barrel chambered to shoot the 22 Short only. This is not a Gallery gun but a special order 22 Short only gun. This rifle is slightly used. The bluing would rate a 98% or better condition. The stock and pump handle would rate the same. The bore is minty and bright. The sights are the standard sights for this model. The original box is serial numbered to this gun. The end label is fully intact and readable. The box is in sound condition and is in clean condition. This box is the latter model box without the graphics. The pamphlet and 10 commandments of safety notice is included. To find a Model 61 with special order features is rare! This rifle being chambered for the 22 Short only and not a Gallery gun is quite rare! Having the original box is a real plus! This boxed Winchester would be a real prize in 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.
