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.

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.

Thanks for participating in the survey!

It should have a flat hammer spring.  The serial number identifies it as a September 1920 production rifle.

Hello,

Your Model 62 was manufactured sometime after September 1938.

Thanks,

Bert
