Bert,

That was why I purchased the rifle because I have never seen a Model 71 with no rear dovetail.  Just thought it was different to say the least and wanted you to have it in your survey.

Thanks again for sharing the information for the survey!

Nothing too special, but a fair condition rifle.

Bert,

I just picked up serial 14761, deluxe 24″ rifle with standard rear sight-no bolt peep. This was sold by Cady Auctions.  I hope this is a new one for the survey.

Thanks, Kevin

Hello Kevin,

I added it to the survey when I found it listed in the Cady auction.  It was manufactured in January 1938.

Bert, I have SN 27133, a standard Model 71. I don’t recall whether I’ve given you photos and details for your survey. If not, I can send description and photos if you like.

I entered it in the survey in November 2020.  It is a standard Model 71 rifle, manufactured in 1948.

Yes, I’ve had the 71 for many years, so I must have given you the information in 2020.  I bought it because it was manufacture in 1948. I set out to get an example of every Winchester from 1948. 

I need to dig through the safes and make certain that every appropriate Winchester I own gets into these surveys!

Hi Bert,

 

This one showed up today:

https://i.imgur.com/unyJzCh.jpgImage Enlarger

13998

Deluxe (special rifle)

Long Tang

24” barrel 

Side of receiver NOT d&t for peep

Bolt machined for 98a but none appears to have ever been present 

It showed up with a marbles rear barrel sight but now has the correct 22K.

Barrel address is type-1

Muzzle is in the white

No extra holes or alterations apparent 

Checkering is of the finer type seen on pre-WWII

Im assuming this one was made 86 years ago this month?

Hello Joel,

Yes, October 25th, 1937 to be precise.  It brings the total documented in the survey to 3,028.  I am quickly approaching 6.5% of the total production, and will hopefully someday reach 10%.

The table below is the surveyed breakdown by Variation.

Variations Surveyed Qty. % of Total Extrapolated Qty.
Special Rifle 1,593 52.61% 24,860
Sporting Rifle 1,252 41.35% 19,538
20″ Special (Carbine) 135 4.46% 2,107
20″ Sporting (Carbine) 44 1.45% 687
Receiver only 1 0.03%  
? 3 0.10%  
Total 3,028    

 

Thanks,

Bert

Can you send me pictures of S/N 811 ?  Does it have factory QD sling mounts ?

Based on the 1951 manufacture date, you need a Lyman No. 56W sight.  Search for one on ebay… one will eventually show up for sale.
