Search results for 'model 63' (19658)

…53 is grouped with model 92 in the "when was my winchester made" serial look up section. The serial number of my model 53 in 44wcf is 470. According to the serial look up my gun was made in 1892. I know that is incorrect. Matter of fact the barrel has a 25 stamped…

…on the bottom meaning 1925. Is there a separate serial look up section for the model 53 only?

…shooters since I was always under the impression that target rifles were more often modified than sporting rifles but that is not the case with these models.

That statistic surprises me too, but I believe a distinction should be made between the practical, common sense, mods commonly seen on sporting…

….  Smart & well executed mods, such as checkering, I'd pay more, not less, for.  So please let me know when you run across a nicely checkered Model 69!  (There's a beautifully re-stocked one on GI, but at $1000, I have to pass.)

Interesting information!  Just for fun, I just calculated the same statistics for the Model 43.  What I found is that of the (878) I have documented that are in the May 1948 - October 1950 range (pre factory D&T for a scope), (394…

…) of them have been altered from original (primarily D&T for a scope).  That equates to a 44.9% alteration rate.  The Models 65 and 71 also have high rates of alteration.

…here where the REAL EXPERTS are located.  I am somewhat of a gun tinkerer and have been fixing and repairing them since about 1958 and have had many model 63's apart for one reason or another.  Yesterday I got down in my workshop and began to cycle a cartridge though the action slowly and notice where

…part of the ongoing research and model survey for the Model 56 and 57 I was curious as to how many guns had been irrevocably altered from their original configuration.  As of this year I have (with the help…

…of Bert and others) logged about 3% of the total production of those models.  The Model 56 is a Sporting rifle and the 57 is a Target rifle.

Interestingly, the modification percentages are identical for both models, 41% of each model

…original collectable rifles and that, coupled with natural attrition such as fire, flood, theft, etc. drives the price higher, especially in those models such as the Model 56 where there were only about 8,500 produced and theoretically about 5,000 still in original (unmodified) condition, and then…

…with an unknown percentage of those lost, damaged or destroyed over the years.  It sure makes finding a nice Model 56 tough!

Anyway, I thought it was interesting that sporting shooters modified their rifles just as frequently as target shooters since I was…

…always under the impression that target rifles were more often modified than sporting rifles but that is not the case with these models.

From what I see you need the dust cover, stop screw and the dust cover stop. You can only use the first model cover. They make repos of the dust cover but even those are in short supply these days. You can keep a eye on Ebay for originals.

…either of you boys know if the Lyman No. 2 tang sight that is currently made will fit the holes in the tang of the model 63?  I can't see the stock sights and do not want to scope mine.  I would love to have the tang sights because I can see them well enough to shoot

…depends on whether you are a collector who can afford such things, or you are a common man shooter who just likes the Model 63 rifle over others.  Lord knows you can buy good BRAND NEW rifles for much less than a decent Model 63 costs.  But those new rifles have no soul. …

… The model 63 has it in spades.  Since I am not a collector, all I have to say is all the best to the collector who was able to ad that one to his/her collection
