I’m new here, but have been a Win nut since 60 years ago at age 10. Just got a Win model 65 in 32-20. I’ve had ’94’s for years, but this one is my new “baby”.

Next will be a Win 71. Glad to be here with fellow “pix136769239.jpgImage Enlargerpix059613906.jpgImage EnlargerWin Gun Nuts”

Welcome to the asylum, Ron! Sweet 65 in a sweet cartridge. Good luck on your quest for the 71. It’s a bit of a beast by comparison but has its good points.

Hello & welcome Ron,

What is the serial number on your very nice looking Model 65 rifle (so that I can add it to the research survey) ?

RonC, was that recently in an auction? I think I may have been watching that one before you got it…

That is a gorgeous Model 65. The 32-20 version is scarcer than the 218 Bee (although you’d never know it given the popularity of the 218 Bee). I had a nice Model 65 in 32-20 but not in as nice of a condition. The 32-20 cartridge is one of my favourites for taking care of Racoon and Woodchuck problems around the yard or down in the bean field.

It is absolutely gorgeous! I fell in love as soon as I saw it. Awesome design and this one is in very good shape for its age. I hope I’m looking halfway that good at age 82, lol
