Winchester 61 .22mag price?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all, I see a few of these in .22lr but recently saw one locally in .22 mag in good but shooter condition (decent bluing but wood has many dings and scratches). They are asking around $1,000 for it. Are they a little high in price or does it being .22 mag justify the price?

Iíve been interested in acquiring a 61 magnum for a few years; hence, I have watched pricing in and around central Arizona. A really nice one seems to be priced in the $1,800 - 2,000 range. Without good pictures of the subject rifle, itís impossible to judge what a fair deal would look like. I do think that $1,000 for a 80-90% rifle is not unreasonable.

I think that is a good price. I don't see too many but the ones I've seen were all close to $2000. Most 22lr versions in nice condition are getting close to or over $1000 here.

$1000 for a shooter grade model 61 in 22 mag is a good price I believe. It would be very hard to find one cheaper.

This thread takes me back a few years, Mace Sports had a 61 magnum in very good condition, the Manager at the time tried to talk me into buying it, it was around five or six hundred dollars. Sigh

Well, someone else thought it was a good deal and bought it before I stepped up. Such as life.

Yes, the magnums always did bring a premium price.

I remember when the LRs were going for $200 and the magnums were $300.

Those were the days. Makes me feel old.

I think 1500 dollars for a nice one is the least you will get one for. I have a winchester 61 magnum model with a weaver period correct scope on it. You will need deep pockets to have every variation of the winchester 61 that was produced.Would love to have a a octagon barreled 61 but at my age probably not going to happen.

that was the goal of my father and I................. some 95 model 61's later we think we have achieved that goal as well as some variations that are very rare. We have the elusive octagon "matted" barrel version amongst our treasures!

61 mag pricing

Just bought an early 61 mag in 95% condition with a Redfield 6X scope and 10 boxes of mag ammo for $1050 if that helps.

That 10 boxes of ammo by itself is quite a bit of coin in todays pandemic economy. A 95% 61 magnum would not cut it for me. I see a lot of butchered up 61 out there with the side mount scope mounts sacrilege! Buy once cry once I say!

Couldn't agree more. %%%%%%%ized 61's are a shame. I have strict standards for my collecting.

If you searched for completed auctions on gunbroker 95% magnums usually sell for about $1600. Add shipping, ffl and buyer fees and you're looking at $1,750.

Excellent examples sell for $2k+.

WMRF

Let's not forget the early rare versions of the Magnums that were labeled as WMRF starting in the 284XXX serial number range. They are really bringing a premium if you can find one.

There is a 61 Magnum for sale not far from me. Serial # in the 302,000 range, and the barrel reads "22 WIN. MAG. R.F." Is that the more common marking?
