I originally saw this rifle being sold by Pat Mckune in MN on Guns International a few years ago as a VERY early round barrel Long Rifle only configuration.   I was “curious” about it then.  The same rifle is now sporting a OB .22 Short Only configuration at Puglisi Guns in Duluth, MN!!! Screenshot-2018-08-02-07.32.43.pngImage EnlargerScreenshot-2018-08-02-07.32.52.pngImage EnlargerWinchester-61-22-Short_101076702_50_251C9D0576DE9510.jpgImage EnlargerWinchester-61-22-Short_101076702_50_769CAD516529A091.jpgImage EnlargerWinchester-61-22-Short_101076702_50_29242DC917E13B5B.jpgImage EnlargerWinchester-61-22-Short_101076702_50_B88F59B1840B51FE.jpgImage EnlargerWinchester-61-22-Short_101076702_50_C0625C28091E62E8.jpgImage Enlarger

I have added it to the listing of Fake Rifles.

I’ve been reading the various threads on real/fake model 61’s and am posting this one from an upcoming auction for feedback.  Model 61, serial #73235, 22 short, 24″ octagon barrel.  Please see photos.  What do you think?

Hello Big Mac,

I have seen that rifle previously listed on Guns International by a Brad Baker out of Missouri.  Your photos are of the same rifle and it appears to be original and unaltered.  I did note that it was a quite nice rifle on the GI listing.
