A friend has an early 4 digit in the 3000 block. It has no barrel crowning like most winchester 22s and in fact the barrel end is not even cut perfectly square. It is well work and all original.

Winchester Bob,

Thanks so much for the additional information.
Did you just buy the WRF rifle? I have it in the survey as being on Gunbroker.

rc,
I need the exact SN please and I assume the rifle is chambered for short, long, & long rifle?

Michael

Win Bob,

That was a very nice rifle. I was tempted. But with 20 Model 61's I really didn't need another. But I was really tempted!

Congrats
Michael

Michael,

It is the best I've seen....the previous owner's scratched out marking on the receiver of a scarce gun is something I can live with...

I'm looking for a W61 sight for it now....Got one to sell?

Model 61 Serial Number

I have what I believe is a 1950 Model 61 s/n 135126. Barrel marked, left side:
MODEL61-S.L.OR L.R.-
that is to the best of my ability to repeat here. The dashes are the Mdash, or long dash.

John

Hello John,

Thanks so much. Your rifle was actually manufactured during 1949.

Hi, Mike -

My 61 is serial #170630, round barrel, S,L,&LR, no scope grooves, about 95% condition. My research shows it was shipped in 1952, although the receiver was serial numbered in August of 1951. Hope this helps.

John

Jag2,

Thanks for the info on your Model 61's and the data on the 1892's also. That survey is going well. Just need about another 5000 rifles in it!! Here are a couple pics of one of my 27 Model 1892's.
