For the 22 rimfire fans. Just acquired another collector grade 69A to complete my collection of model 69’s. All four are different variations. Thanks to JWA for his book and identification of each model.

Can’t quit until you have a 697!  (Might be a tight fit in your case, but that’s no excuse.)

Looks like a Weaver J model scope, which I’d prefer over a K on a .22; still my favorite make of hunting scope; the old ones, I mean.

You also need a Match and Target. Hard to find, and expensive for a M69A. JWA has most all of them, and I have a few as well. They are really nice rifles. Get em while they are cheap.    Big Larry

Very nice. I agree, other the the 52, now is the time to be buying these IMO under valued and under interested in Winchesters in 22 rimfire.

It is Clarence. I’m in agreement with you on the old ones and Weaver J model.

I have a minty J4 in it’s original box. I also have a B6. Bought them as period scopes for my M69’s and M72’s with grooved receivers. Have never used them for shooting. I found the Baby Redfield to be a much better scope. About double the price of a J series Weaver, but not period correct. Big Larry
