The drop at the heel for a standard G6901R is approximately 1 5/8" and the drop for a G6940R Target stock is 1 3/4" (with a 3" pitch) so it sounds as if you have a pre-war Target profile stock but without the Target sling swivels. Interesting anomaly - thanks.

Regards,

Thanks for the response. I looked closely for other markings on the receiver and barrel. There is no star on the left receiver port but what looks like a poorly stamped 2 on the right port. There a similar, poorly stamped 2 on the left side of the barrel about 3" ahead of the receiver. As well there is a poorly stamped 8 on the receiver just ahead of the safety and below the back of the bolt handle cut.

There appears to be a stamp in the stock barrel channel about 3/4" from the front of the stock. It looks like it could the top, right 1/4, of an X like in SUPER X or the right side of a W with the same style of lettering.

Other than that it appears to be a Winchester 69 A with the 80A peep and the correct ramp front sight. Somehow it wound up with a Target Stock. Could it have been manufactured with a left over stock after the Target model was discontinued? Could the 2 on the barrel indicate a 1942 model?

Here are some pictures of the target stock taken with my standard 69 A.

Look forward to learning more about this rifle.


Thanks again,

Godd comparison photos - thanks. It certainly does look like a Target stock without the sling swivels. Since it has the tapered forend instead of the blunt forend it is a post war stock.

The "2" markings are simply inspection stamps. 69's will have a variety of letters and numbers stamped at the receiver openings both on the left and the right side. The barrel date (if applied) would be 2 digits located on the underside of the barrel directly in front of the recever.

Is the trigger smooth or grooved? Is the caliber marking .22 S, L & LR or spelled out .22 Short Long and Long Rifle?

Regards,
