Here is a little Model 75 Sporting craziness for you –   https://www.gunbroker.com/item/979108889

Not only are prices rapidly increasing on the high-end Winchester .22’s, a little one-on-one bidding takes it to new levels.

It is a very nice specimen for sure (except for the incorrect sling and magazine), but now the local pawn shop (no offense to pawn brokers) will think their D&T’d, re-blued 75S is worth the same.

Kudos to LS&B for presenting it well and I hope to see them again at the 2023 WACA Cody show.

Best Regards,

PS, it is also the first time I have ever seen someone put diamond staple sling keepers from another sling onto a Bauer sling to make it look more “Winchesterish” Wink

What say you Larry?  Time to cash in?

But is it factually true, as seller asserts, that Models 69 & 75 made use of same basic rcvr?  Have never owned either model, but comparing photos, the two look mighty similar.  And what about the “lead-lapped” brl claim?

Yes, LSB is correct, they used the same receiver design, (although the main difference is the front edge of the 69 receiver is chamfered to meet the barrel and the 75 is not).  And, yes, the 75 barrels were initially lead lapped.  It is a pre-war early rifle in the LSB auction so it would have been, they did their due-diligent research.

I was surprised at this one because I typically monitor (with the help of MANY unnamed souls here) the current prices on the Model 75 Sporting rifles (among other .22s) and have never seen one sell for more than about $1600 at the highest end.  I bought a 99% specimen at Cody, in the box with all the correct “doodads”, last year for $1100.  Although, it was quickly overshadowed by the fortuitous acquisition of Bert’s spectacular 1885 takedown rifle chambered  in .22 short with a #3 24″ “blunderbuss” barrel 😉  

As a refresher, it is the one on top, the lower High Wall 1885 .22 Short I talked Big Larry out of……

I just sold one of mine, but I still have a minty, late Sporter, with the bbl. sight. Bought it years ago for $1,450, as it had the grooved receiver. At that time, minty guns with pretty stocks were bringing $1,800 +. I probably overpaid for mine, but now I see this one. Late, grooved, rifles, are bringing premiums, but I doubt as much as this rifle brought. I have never fired mine. It is minty, and will stay that way.  Big Larry
