Bert, I have mod. 62 ser. #1643 for your survey. Nothing out of the ordinary other than early number. It appears someone sprayed something on it to cover the lack of bluing that gives the appearance of a browned gun.

I put this info in the wrong place earlier.

Model 62, serial #199816, .22 short caliber,

w/triangular loading port, as in the true Gallery guns, as this appears to be!

Nothing extraordinary about this rifle, good condition, hard plastic butt.

Typical wear, but not shot out, or worn out, for a “Gallery”!Smile

A bit too early for the survey I am working on, but can tell you it was manufactured in early June, 1901.

Winchester Model 62/62A?

SERIAL#96836/96836A?

MFG. 1940?

.22 L.R. Caliber Smoothbore

Added matted rib on Barrel, kinda crudely, doesn’t typically look like Winchester’s Work!

Triangular Loading Port, like used in Shooting Galleries!

Red Rubber But Pad added

Under receiver, a special “w” stamped below serial #, as Winchester sometimes did?

Interesting, to say the least!

Frankenchester/ Probably!!!

The Serial number stamp, with the “A” after it, and Without the A, after it, is at least Intriguing! Smile

Tony,

The DOM was November 1939. 

The “A” on the end of the serial number is completely normal for a late production Model 62.  The Model 62A was marked as such on the barrel. 

The “W” is a factory marking, and is found on most Winchester models that were manufactured between February 1939 – February 1941.

The rib is definitely an aftermarket alteration, and I suspect that the “SMOOTH BORE” marking is also not factory original, but I could be mistaken.  The loading port looks like it was altered to resemble a Gallery rifle magazine.  Accordingly, the “Frankenchester” analogy is accurate in my opinion.

I appreciate the Info. Bert.

Yeah, being a .22 caliber Long Rifle, really wasn’t what was used in the shooting galleries!

The Barrel was probably shot out and it was made into a smoothbore!

If the Rib was added by Winchester, we know that they would have at least put their Proof stamp under the rib, in front of the other proof stamp, on the left side like we’ve seen on others!

Paul,

Your Model 06 was manufactured late in June, 1927.

Thanks for participating in the survey!
