I am curious about how many "DELUXE" model 61 Winchesters are out there and would like to see pictures of them. Also would like to hear of any factory variations such as carbines, factory scoped, smooth (english) grip, matted barrels, engraved, gallery, etc.

By the way...... my research on the "Routledge" bored model 61's has now reached 36 known serial numbers out of the 77 produced!

Now I'm sure this is really a dumb question but, is that a factory original gun and what type of finish is on the barrel??...it does not look like bluing. Sorry...I know nothing about these guns so had to ask. Forgive my ignorance. Peter

Stunning! A special order Octagon rifle with matted top barrel. In wonderful original condition to boot!

Peter,

The barrel is rust blued, which is why the color is different versus the receiver frame. The roll matted top flat is an ultra rare special order feature on a .22 slide-action rifle.

.......... I guess I am the only one wanting to see different variations and Deluxe Models.

Not at all! I am throughly enjoying admiring these posted photos. I do not own a Model 61 but I sure appreciate seeing these beautiful deluxe examples.

I too do not own a Model 61 (or 1890, 1906, 62/62A) "deluxe" but I do enjoy seeing them.

My guess is that you are trying to reach a relatively rare niche within the Winchester collecting community. Keep in mind that we only have 2300 registered users on this website (thus far), and the vast majority of us do not own or collect the high-end and rare slide-action .22 rifles. That doesn't mean that we do not appreciate seeing them though 8)

I apologize......... I did some rearranging of photos and the links got messed up. Should be working now.

I'm confused. Why would someone put a pigeon grade checkering pattern on that gun?

Thanks for following! Didn't realize that there were so few registered users! Maybe we can get some to join by sparking an interest somewhere!

There are quite a few "Deluxe Grade" pump action 22 Winchesters out there that have varying degrees of factory enhancements......... some of which are
*Pistol Grip Caps
*Engraving
*Checkering (several patterns)
*Special Wood
*Winchester logo
*Barrel lengths other than 24"
*Factory Scopes and Mounts
*Sights
etc.
