I tried searching the forum for this, but could not find anything. Probably doing something wrong…

 

Anyway, is there a way to date one of the late model 06’s that were put together from left over parts? I have one with serial number 8260XX. That number does not appear on any Winchester 06 serial number list I have found so far. 

 

Thanks,

Hal,

Post the entire serial number and I will look it up for you… I am working on a research survey of all the late production Model 06 and Model 90 rifles. A S/N in the 826000 range was not a parts clean-up. Instead, it was simply a regular production rifle late in the production run.

That makes it a January 1930 production rifle.  From March 10th, 1926 through June 6th, 1932, the regular production Model 90 and Model 06 serial numbers were merged.  Parts clean-up production began in February of 1933 (at serial number 846023).

Thank you very much. I bought this rifle a year or two back and my 9 year old grandson fell in love with it. He’s small for his age and has trouble holding up a lot of guns, but he can handle this one very nicely. He’s a pretty good shot with it too. I found myself an older 06 to replace it with so I gave this one to him.
