This Winchester was produced in 1957. The rifle’s serial number is 156760AX. The “X” suffix is only used when a serial number stamping machine die gets stuck and duplicates the same serial number on the next gun. To denote the next gun that has the same serial number the workman hand stamps a “X” after the duplicated serial number to separate the two identical serial numbers. This happens very rarely during production of Winchester guns. This is a nice rare feature to find on a Winchester! This Model 63 has the latter style 23 inch barrel with a minty bore. The receiver top is the standard round top. This gun is in very fine lightly used condition. The original barrel blue would rate a 98% or better condition. The original receiver blue would rate a 97% or better condition. The stock and handguard retain all of the original finish. There is no cracks or damage to the good looking wood. The rifle has the original front sight intact. The rear sight is a fold down adjustable sight. The tang sight is by Lyman. The take down feature is very snug and locks up properly. This is a very fine condition Winchester with the rare “X” suffix serial number that would appeal to 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.
