Don,

I did have it documented in the survey.  Currently, I now have 3,355 Model 64s documented, which is just over 5% of the total production.

It is a 20″ Deer Rifle, and the rear sight is a Lyman No. 56.

It is in a batch of 20″ Model 64 rifles that I have previously documented (including your rifle).  The DOM is September 1934.

Thanks,

Bert

Bert,

Thank You.

So mine was already in database? Curious how that happened, I just bought it out of a small collection, that was family friend owned.

Do you know total production numbers for the 64’s? Are the Deer Rifles the lowest production?

Where can I find the sling swivels, there missing? Posts are there.

 

Also have a 55 #7669 and a 94 #1215720 if interested in for survey.

Yes, Your Model 64 was already in my database.  Because I have been researching & surveying the Model 64 for close to 20-years now, I cannot say when or where first saw it.  That stated, the odds are high that the person you bought it from contacted me at some time in the past.

The “listed” total production for the Model 64 is 66,783.  However, I have evidence that suggests that the total production was significantly more than that. Because the Model 64 was serial numbered entirely within the Model 94 sequence, it is unlikely that we will ever know what the actual true production number was.  That stated, I have thus far documented 3,361 Model 64 rifles, and of that number, 967 (31%) of them are Deer Rifles.  If you extrapolated that percentage using the 66,783 number, it indicates that 20,705 Deer Rifles were manufactured.

Check ebay frequently for the QD sling swivels.  The Model 64 Deer Rifles used the same QD swivels as the Model 70 and Model 71.

I already have Model 55 S/N 7669 documented (with the exception of the barrel date). 

I do not have Model 94 S/N 1215720 in my records (yet). Which caliber is it, and does it have a “W” stamped below the serial number?

Bert,

That Model 94 is 32 WS and yes there is a “W” under serial number. What the W for?

The “W” stamp was used as a quality control test of the new bluing formula that Winchester had recently began using. The “W” stamp is found on 95% of all Model 94 & Model 64 receiver frames manufactured in the February 1939 – February 1941 time period.  Your Model 94 was manufactured in late December 1939.

October 1937.  Does it have a flat (uncrowned) muzzle, or is it crowned & blued ?

It is 1 of 290 Standard 20-inch (carbine) Model 64 rifles in my survey.

Thanks,

Bert

Bert,  I own a Model 64 Deer Rifle chambered in .30 W.C.F. serial 1560219, 1949, 24″ barrel, Lyman 56H receiver sight. WRA sight blank fitted into rear sight dovetail; #3277 front sight hood (.61 H); Super Grade swivels for 1″ sling.  I’d call the wood 98%-99%, receiver 95% with slight flaking on receiver bottom where grasped. Barrel about 97%-98%.  

Thanks,

Bill

Hello Bill,
 
Your Model 64 Deer Rifle was manufactured in early February 1949 based on my research survey, and it is a new entry in the survey.
 
Thanks for posting!
