Hello, I was just recently told about this group after talking to the Museum (Cody) Director while looking for parts or dimensions of parts for a 131 magazine latch. I have been an amateur gunsmith for a number of years, and recently retired and started doing this full time and learning more from AGI. Lucky for me my first project is from a friend at Church who wants me to repair his .22 rifle. The magazine latch is the only part I can’t get, so I am forced to make one, and for that I need dimensions or a scale drawing. I would even love to have a set of blue prints of it.

Please If anyone could direct me in the right direction to get something to repair this rifle I would be very grateful. Thank you for your time in reading this!

Hello Ken,

For the most part, we at the WACA focus on the Pre-1964 production Winchester firearms. That stated, the Model 131 was a short-lived and low production rifle. It was introduced in 1967 and was last listed in the 1972 catalog. The listed production was just 16,371 rifles. I suggest that you try Numrich (e-gunparts.com).

Bert, Thank you for your reply! That is the problem Numerich doesn’t have any and they can only offer an exploded diagram to view. I have tried about 20 places to purchase a original spring no luck. So it boils down to finding someone who can get me in touch with whoever has line drawings that shows the dimensions for the latch spring so I can make it out of round spring stock instead of the flat thin spring stock.

Thank you for your time Bert!
