James,

The swivel type on your Model 64 Zipper is the type that I have most often encountered (or better stated, the ones I remember examining). Until this topic was started, I was unaware that at least two different type existed (though I admittedly have not scrutinized all of them closely).

Thanks for the information, Bert. I really haven't paid too much attention to this issue myself.

I do enjoy these kind of learning topics.

Have a good day!

February 6th:  I just discussed this with a local smith.  Looking at this from a fresh point of view he determined that the rear (buttstock) swivel mount has enough metal on it that he could mill off the ends with the screw holes and then mill a "key" in the base to fit the dovetail in the forend cap!  I'm beginning to realize Winchester was very efficient with design dimensions between various models and that the rear swivel mount should be more common and hopefully easier to find.  (might be necessary to click on image to expand)   Chaz

Bob Knapp agrees with Bert on the rarity of the deluxe nosecap.  He suggests milling a rear swivel mount to fit the front.  Thanks all, and part ordered.

Finally completed this project.  I sent a buttstock swivel mount (with two screw holes) to Bob Knapp and he machined it to fit the front nose cap dovetail.  His work is beautiful and reasonably priced.  Thanks to Bob and others for comments and suggestions.  BKpix660502759.jpgImage Enlarger

I apologize for the necro post, ( Atleast it show's I am using the search feature!) I recently purchased a Japanese made Win 1892 Deluxe Takedown in 45.colt (20" barrel) I would like to put a sling on it, as this is my new deer rifle. Would the 64 forend swivel cap interchange with the one I have? and if so is there a place to purchase one at? 

 Thanks in advance.

It is extremely unlikely that an original Model 64 forend cap would fit on a Japanese made Winchester Model 1892.

I am going to study this topic further. In my ongoing research survey for the Model 64, I have not specifically noted any nose-caps that were dovetailed for the QD sling buckle. The examples I have access to were milled from a solid piece of steel. However, it seems that a few of you fellows have seen a few, and it warrants a more detailed survey.

Bert, This is a photo of my new in box nose cap. Any additional angles I can supply.

  When looking at the dovetailed caps.You have to look close to see the dove tail on most rifles.It was a very well done dove tailing job,that was done on the Model64 Deer Rifles.rifles.
