I just found a Win. M61, made in 1961.  It has a grooved receiver.

On the right side of the trigger guard, behind the trigger is stamped – CHS.  The C could be a different letter?  What does these letters refer to..?

Love the old blued steel & walnut…. I do intend to join the Winchester Collectors shortly.

Thank you!

Hello and welcome,

Those letters are most likely the initials of a previous owner.  I have been working on a research survey of these rifles and have cataloged just over 8,400 individual rifles and none have been marked with those letters.
