Did Winchester make a Model 67 in .22 short only?  Someone wants to sell me this rifle and he claims that it is in .22 short.

Negatory.  Keep your distance from “someone.”

Well this rifle may be coming to us in a lot that my employer purchased.  It should be there in a few weeks.  When I comes in I will take pics myself and post them.

DEEREHART has given you the best answer, and it was an honor to stand next to him.

The early 67 caliber roll-marking was:

Model 67 – .22 Short

Long and Long Rifle

It is located on two lines and the lower line is sometimes obscured by the stock so it looks like “Model 67 – .22 Short” period.

There is another slight possibility, there is also a smooth bore version that was marked “Model 67 .22” on the upper line and “For Shot Only” on the second line.  Some people have misread this to be “For Short Only”.  If that is the case you have hit the jackpot because they are worth MUCH more than a standard Model 67.
