I posted something similar to this a few minutes ago, and thought it might have been deleted because I didn’t ID myself. My apologies in advance for sending two.

I have a Winchester model 67-22 (short long and long rifle) that’s missing the bolt assembly. 

The barrel length is 16-3/8″ to the chamber, and 19″ total length.       I believe the stock is yellow pine? Its total length is 20″.  It’s 7-5/8″ from the tip of the barrel to the stock.  

It looks like the rifle was made for youth? Or someone did a nice job customizing it?

I’m concerned about purchasing the correct bolt.  How would I know? 

Thank you for any information!

Hi Deje,

As a guest your first post has to be approved by a Moderator.  You are now approved 🙂

Based on your description, your rifle sounds like someone’s custom creation for a youth.  Winchester never made a 67 with a barrel that short.

The minimum barrel length allowed by the ATF (for non NFA firearms) is 16″ so you are ok there as long as your measurements are accurate.  What some people forget is the overall length of a rifle cannot be less than 26″ so you might want to verify that is ok also.

Winchester did not make the 67 stocks out of yellow pine they used walnut and sometimes cherry wood so it is likely yours has been replaced with a custom made stock.

For the bolts, there are 3 primary styles for the pre-war 67, 67 post-war and 67A.  They should not be interchanged even though they might “fit” in the receiver.  I will try to post pictures later this evening showing the differences.  They are readily available on eBay for between $100-$150 but you should check the headspace with your rifle before firing it.

You can post pictures by hosting them on a different site and linking the URL here.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
