Hello Melvin,

The "Winchester factory" no longer exists. Much of the original historical information and production ledgers are now kept at the Cody Firearms Museum in Cody, WY. What you can have researched will depend on which Model of shotgun or rifle you are interested in and what the serial number range is.

Melvin,

What is available are the warehouse records and they are not available for all guns. Here is a link to the museum PDF that will tell you what guns are covered.

What you might get depending on whats available is:

Warehouse date
Type of firearm
Caliber
Barrel length and shape
Trigger
Stock and butt
Sights
Magazine
Shipping date
Other features
