Hi all, this is a really great forum, and really helpful as I try to break down a model 64 Winchester that my father-in-law gave to me. Everything is going good except that I can’t figure out how to get the magazine tube off. I thought there was some type of a weld or permanent pin through the small band at the front of the magazine too. It sounds like maybe that is actually a pin that can be removed? Do I need to punch that out before I can get the magazine tube off?

Hello Mark,

Yes the pin is removeable, and you do need to punch out the pin… from left to right with the muzzle pointed down range.

I have a research survey in progress for the Model 64. Accordingly, I would like to know the serial number, the caliber, and which variation your Model 64 rifle is.

Thanks Bert — it worked!  Really appreciate it.  My gun is a 30-30 caliber, Model 64 – 30 W.C.F.  Serial number is 1399637.  I’m thinking it was made around 1942?  My wife’s grandfather would likely have bought it in southern Utah around then.  

I shot it a few weeks ago, and all worked well.  Just giving it a good cleaning, re-oiling stock, and dealing with some minor rust.  Trying to decide if I should cold-blue it or what.  Fun project for sure.

Hello Mark,

The serial number makes it a 1946 production rifle.

I highly recommend holding off on using cold blue on it, If you can send me a few clear pictures of it, I can give you a better idea for what it might need.

Thanks Bert.  I couldn’t figure out how to put pictures on here, but I sent some just now to your email address listed above. Thanks for any help!
