 Hi

I have a 62 A made in 1946 its in great original condition. The question I have is it has a 20 inch barrel and want to know did they make them on special order with the shorter barrel ? Any help is appreciated. Not sure how to insert a picture.  Thanks  Todd

Todd,

While almost anything was possible from Winchester, I personally would be highly suspicious of a 20-inch barrel on a Model 62A.

Thanks Bert for your thought but it looks 100 % factory I live close to where they were made and wondered if they could have had the custom shop in the plant do it ?

Also does it have any effect on its value.

Would be happy to enclose some pictures if that would help.

Thanks  Todd

Todd,

Send clear close-up pictures of the front sight, and the face of the muzzle to me at Win1885@msn.com
