I just wanted to say hello, and introduce myself. My name is Jaime, and I have been in the presence of Winchesters since I was born.

My grandfather was Robert Weinel, and if you grew up in the Midwest, and you needed to know something about Winchester rifles, you went to him. I grew up shooting Model 86’s, 92’s, 94’s, and countless Pre-64 Model 70’s. The first rifle I ever learned to disassemble and put back together, was a Model 92 Texas Special that I still own, and will pass down to my kids, God willing!

I look forward to chatting with y’all, as the one thing I didn’t get to do, was learn all I could from my grandpa while he was around. I am a modest collector now, but I am always looking to expand my collection, and chat about what I’ve found if anyone’s interested in listening! I will also be picking yer brains for knowledge!! 😀

Nice to meet you all, and we’ll chat soon!

Jaime
