Have a nice model 64 in .32 Special #1629311. I have owned it a looonnng time and killed deer and a black bear with it. Extremely nice condition.

Also a mixed up rifle. Looks like a 64 with the exception of the receiver which is marked 1894. Even the lever looks 64ish to me. Deluxe checkered wood with factory swivels Model 64 barrel in .30 WCF does have the circle P. Steel BP. Has grip cap. Ramp FS, weird looking stamped rear with a large hole. The receiver is numbered 169462. It came from the PNW and I know there was a gun store in Aberdeen that picked up a pile of Winchester parts sometime around WW2 and assembled guns from parts. I know you’ll be asking me for the barrel date and I will get that for you soon.

Also a semi deluxe 1894 .30 WCF. PG w cap. HR BP. 26″ oct. Full mag. tang sight. Nicely figured wood. There is a dovetail in the bolt for a sight, but it has a nice silver inlay in it with initials. #67783

A 64 Carbine in .32 Special. Checkered wood. PG cap. Steel BP. Factory swivels. #1486754

Waiting for feedback.

I’ll post more later. I have several takedowns, and a cool Carbine in .25-35

Which specific variation is your Model 64 with serial number 1629311 ? The serial number indicates that it was manufactured in the year 1949 (most likely October).

The mixed up rifle (I refer to them as a “Frankenchester”) is not all that uncommon.  I have encountered several dozen of them in the past many years.  That stated, I do not record them in the Model 64 survey.

Your Model 64 20-inch Deer Rifle was manufactured in 1948 (March).  It is the least common of the four variations.  The current totals in the research survey;

1.  Standard Rifle = 1,650

2.  Deer Rifle =  741

3.  20-inch Rifle (Carbine) = 270

4.  20-inch Deer Rifle = 155

Of the (155) 20-inch Deer Rifles, (34) of them are 32 Winchester Specials.

How about that 94 semi deluxe? 67783

BTW, got a kick out of the frankenchester name. It’s odd that it has ckeckered wood and swivels but has been modified. I’ll pull the forearm and get the barrel date on it. Won’t be a late barrel with the .30 WCF marking.

What is the difference between a Standard and a Deer Rifle? The checkering?

I am not surveying the early production Model 1894s that can be lettered through the CFM.  I will recommend that you contact the CFM and obtain a factory letter for it.

That’s what I was thinking. Just hadn’t seen the ‘Deer Rifle’ reference for a while. Saw a 24″ barreled one on 30 wcf yesterday on consignment. Asking 3500. There were several lever guns there. 2 95’s a couple 86’s, one 71 deluxe, about a half dozen 94’s. I’d like to get numbers and details for the surveys here. Might ask the owner if that would be o.k.

Are those swivels factory? I’m thinking not. One of mine is almost identical to this one in condition and caliber, but no swivels. Mine might be a year or 2 later.

I do not believe that they are.  That is a standard Model 64 rifle, and unless the original buyer special ordered sling swivels, it would have been manufactured without them.  In the rare cases where a Model 64 standard was ordered with swivels, they have the exact same type as found on the Deer Rifle.

Does it have a hard rubber pistol grip cap w/logo, or a plain steel grip cap?
