Any thoughts on a early M67, non grooved stock, with a Lyman 55W peep sight attached? It was a factory option and all my pics show excellent workmanship and a blank in the bbl. sight slot. If factory, this may well be quite a rare rifle. Just bought it and it wont be here until next week. Has anyone here ever seen one?  Thanks, Big LarrySmileSmileLaughKiss

I am not sure, but I think the M67 had three types. The finger groove with the exposed TD screw, the slim stock like the FG but no FG and the takedown screw is flush with the bottom of the stock, and the fatter, later stock for the M67-A. This rifle appears to have the 2nd. type. Winchester changed the stocks on their 22's like their underwear. The M69 series for instance has many,many, variations. Most of these changes were slight, not like the M52's where you can readily tell.

I don't know why, but for some reason this site will no longer let me post pics.

I see a picture!  The 55W was an option but also a readily available aftermarket addition.  Is the sight marked "55" or "55W"?  As you surmised, there were more than 3 styles of 67 stocks, at least 7 that I can recall from memory.  Does yours have the blunt forend?

Can you post a close-up of the mounted sight? It does not look to be in the exact factory location but that just may be an optical illusion in you picture.

Jeff, I will get the rifle in a week or so. I have a M60-A to compare workmanship with. I paid less than $300 for it so I figured to just take a chance. Rifle looks real nice. Don't know how the sight is marked. My M60-A target is marked LYMAN 55W in real small letters on top. Thanks, Big Larry

Hi Larry,

You can't get hurt at $300 and potentially could make out very well.  Looking forward to seeing pictures after it arrives.  It should be marked Lyman 55W in the small font  just like your 60A Target.

I have a Model 67 Boys Rifle, 20-in barrel, takedown screw not flush, and a finger-grooved stock.  I have seen pictures of similar Model 67s, but no Boys Rifles w/ the finger groove.

Can anyone tell me when it may have been manufactured, and what it's worth?  Thanks.

The Model 67 Jr. rifle with the finger groove stock was authorized for production on August 8, 1937.  The very first versions featured the non-recessed takedown screw.  The semi-beavertail stock with a recessed takedown screw was authorized in October of 1937 but the change did not take effect on the 67 Junior rifles until well into 1938. 

Based on those dates if your rifle has not been modified (parts swapped) it was manufactured between late 1937 and mid-1938.

Value is based entirely upon condition.  A specimen in very good condition with only a few small stock marks and a high percentage of the original bluing will go for $300-$400 and less of course if in worse condition.  Pictures would help us evaluate it better.  I can post them for you if necessary, just email them to Abendshien at AOL.com
