It just depends on how far you want to go with it. I have various examples of the four models of slide action (pre-64) 22 Winchester rifles but no where near all the variations within each model grouping. Within each model here are some different ones you might want to look for:
1890 – There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd models of these. Within the second models, you have the case hardened version and the blued version. Then you have the individual marked calibers – short, long, WRF, and long rifle after 1918. There are some late 3rd models with round barrels out there too.
1906 – Looks like you might need to add the “Expert” models in blued, half nickel, and full nickel
62 – you could have the 62 and the 62A. The 62’s are pre-war and the 62A’s are mostly post war although there are a small number of them that fall in the pre-war era. There are some short only models with triangular loading gates that fall into the gallery gun label.
61 – again, there are pre and post war versions. There are octagon and round barrels. There are single caliber marked barrels along with the more common S,L,LR barrels. I believe all the octagon barrels are single caliber only. You probably ought to have one in 22 magnum as well, made from 60-63. There are also some “shot only” models with smooth bores, matted receiver frame, and a bead front sight.
I’m sure there are many more possibilities than what I’ve listed, but this was all the ones I could think of to get started. Once you’ve amassed a collection of all of these, feel free to start adding all the deluxe versions and factory engraved guns.

Sorry for the typos, I am using a small phone.
So you wish to know how many different 22 call slide model Winchester you can collect. This is not an easy question to answer, as collectors seem to treat each change as another one to add to their collection, but in general there are the 1890, 1906, 61, 62, 270 and the 275. Lets look at the 1890…
first issued in 22 short, long, extra long, and WRF, Winchester Rim Fire, each an individual model. In1919 22 long rifle came out replacing the 22 extra long. When first issued the 1890 was a solid frame, then in about 1893 the takedown model was introduced. Early guns had steel buttplates but hard rubber was an option. Receivers, metal buttplates, hammers, slide covers, and triggers were case hardened. Then in 1901 the receivers were heat treated and blued. A few of the models had checkered fore ends, and some had receiver engraving. Shortly after introduction pistol grip stocks were offered. Originally the locking lugs were concealed, until the third model which saw the lugs extending through the receiver. Early rifles have rear sights dovetailed in, later replaced by a screw. Then there are the different tang markings, ten I think. Not that all models have this many changes, but you see they can add up. I hope I have shed some light on the fun of Winchester .
PS. This is my first post !
