I can not get parts that fit my .22 Rifle. It is a family heirloom. The firing pin has been missing for years and I’d like to get it working again for my grandson’s. It has Model 62 on the barrel. Serial # 27735 is stamped on the lower tang, 27735A is stamped on the front bottom of receiver. I finally got a firing pin from Homestead parts, after three attempts, 3 wrong pins. This pin is a center pin offset at hammer. It has a hole through the breech, side to side, and only has one hole from the top down. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I’m guessing the pictured bolt is the type you have in your model 62. It was of a style used only for a small number of the model 62 rifles. I think it will be difficult to find a firing pin only. More likely to find complete bolts from parted out rifles. You may want to watch Ebay auctions. They do show up there, just not very often. Good Luck.

Being aware of your last loaded round is probably most important as dry firing is the biggest culprit of doing damage. These guns will give several lifetimes of use if not abused. Fire away Roger……… If you are really concerned about the 62’S firing pin I do have a couple spares if you want to put one on the shelf.
(these are for the 3 pin bolt)
Thanks Erin. Both of my 62 rifles have the one pin bolt. I never have dry fired any of my Winchesters. My dad taught my brother and I from the start of our handling of firearms that it wasn’t a good idea to dry fire any firearm. He was mainly concerned with firing pin and bolt damage caused by the firing pin inertia. He told us to at least insert a spent shell if we thought it necessary to dry fire a weapon to test trigger pull. RDB
