Ran across this advertisement for sale …………. Anyone shed some light on this??? Don’t think Schwings book references this variation.

More than likely, it is not the real thing.

Do you think it was a typo when they said 20″ barrel?  I have one just like it but with a 23″ barrel, as it should be.

I have a M62-A clone. A Rossi M62 SAC with a 16 1/2″ bbl. Even with the shorter bbl. it will still out perform my M61, M62 and M62-A’s. Winchester should have made these in a shorter carbine as a regular production piece. These little shorties have enough accuracy for what they were intended for. My M94-22 Trapper with the 16 1/2″ bbl. is very accurate as well. Big Larry
