I really enjoy these simple classics. Too bad they are now getting more expensive.
One of my first rifles was a 67. A high school friend and I would strap our rifles to our bike handle bars and ride across town to his uncles farm one town over. ( our town had a no discharge of firearms ordinance but the town where his uncles farm was did not. Enjoyed then ( Andy still do today!) the simple pleasure of plinking with a classic wood and steel rifle.
That 67 is long gone, but keep my eyes open for another some day

I'm looking at a pair of finger groove 67's (via emails) and don't have a clue what or where that retaining pin is,and if so what it looks like.
If anyone has photos to illustrate said pin I'd like to see them.
Here are some pics that show the retaining spring and differences of the milling of the receiver. Notice the protruding tit on the early bolt that engages the spring and provides a more positive closing (click) of the action. An early bolt will not fit in a later receiver.

Just out of curiosity, are the approximate thicknesses [width] of the fore stocks of the plain and finger grooved stocks roughly the same? Iíve got a 67 and a semi finished stock that I need to complete, grasping grooves would be a neat touch. I didnít know that they originally came with them. A very neat starter Winchester for new shooters.

The later, non-grooved stock is a semi-beavertail design and is wider at the forend. If you are finishing a replacement stock you can shape it however you like though.
