Thank you for the response. I’ve only been looking for about two weeks now but haven’t come close to finding one

I’ve seen one recently at a show in Colorado Springs. If I recall, the guy wanted about a grand for it.

Thanks for the response. I’m all the way in New Orleans. I’d be willing to buy online though. I look at gunbroker everyday but don’t have any luck. $1,000 is a little steep, but I think I’d be willing to pay that.

My BIL just got back from the Las Vegas Bienfeld gun show and picked up a virtually mint M67 WRF with the finger groove stock, for $900. Redbook is a tad bit more.   Big Larry

I know this is an old post, but I have a standard length Winchester 67 with the WRF barrel.  It doesn’t have sentimental value so I’m thinking of selling it – from my research, it is probably from 1935.   It is not a 67A, has the finger groves in the stock, knurled, non-recessed takedown screw and spring in the bolt.  I’m refinishing the stock (someone lightly scratched their name and other words into the butt half of the stock but there are no big dents or gouges). The butt cap is perfect and appears to be original. The barrel is in really good shape and the chrome on the bolt is very good (perhaps excellent with a little hand polishing).  A local gun shop wanted to buy it for the same price range as a regular 67A but I knew they were hoping I was stupid…  I was thinking of selling it in 3 parts on ebay and know I’d get far more money that way.  I’m wondering how much market there would be for a VG condition complete 67 WRF with a refinished stock.

It would of been a desirable collectable if it were left original.  The refinished stock takes it out of the collectable category for the majority.

I actually haven’t gotten around to sanding it down yet, but I have to wonder if something with crudely scratched lettering is actually more desireable than having a decent refinish.  The spot just forward of the trigger on one side  where it lists first name and initials of what seem to be 3 owners doesn’t detract from the appearance, but the 3 spots (both sides of butt stock and one side of the forearm) saying Center Shot Billy and Strait shooting rifle just seems to be a negative, even for a collector.  I’d post pictures if I could figure out how (do I need to register to post a picture?)   Let me try…left side of stockImage Enlarger

“Decent” wouldn’t suffice–it would have to be first class, otherwise, don’t bother.  Personally, I’d never want to own any gun, however rare, previously owned by not one, but THREE, blithering idiots; of course, there may be others more tolerant of this kind of stupid vandalism–I would have known better when I got my first rifle at the age of 10. 

So, IF you know what you’re doing, & have done it before, & know what the original finish should look like (lacquer, I think) I’d say you don’t have too much too loose.

Yes, but so does the vandalized condition it’s now in.  “Left original” ended when it was vandalized, so question now is how best to ameliorate that damage.  It can’t be restored to its original cond., so I think a skilled refinish is the best option.

Hi 67 WRF,

The Model 67 WRF used the same stock as the standard 67 and 68.  The best route is to simply buy an original unaltered stock from one of those more common models and swap it onto your much more desirable 67 WRF.  A complete decent finger groove stocked 67 rifle can be had for about $200, simply swap the stocks between the 67 and 67 WRF and sell the now lessor quality 67 to recoup some of the cost.  Or, the finger groove stocks alone sell in the $100-$125 range for nice ones.

Also, it is illegal to sell the 67 barrel on eBay (and against their rules) since the “receiver” is integral to the barrel and is regulated by the ATF.

Regards,
