John,

There were no optional barrel lengths for the Model 65. The 25-20 WCF and 32 WCF rifles all had a 22-inch barrel, and the 218 Bee rifles all have a 24-inch barrel. In my survey, I have not found any that were not as listed.

Bert,

if you recall, I have a model 65 with a 24″ 32-20 WIN marked barrel.  If I recall, you thought this was a model 43 barrel that was placed on a model 65.  The serial number is 1,007,050.  The barrel has a filled dovetail on the bottom, that could have been for the forearm attachment on a model 43.

Odd… I do not recall a conversation about Model 65 serial number 1007050 ?  Further, I have it listed in my research survey as a 25-20 WCF caliber rifle.  Can you remind me when we discussed it ?

My apologies, the correct serial number is 1,007,501.  I should verify rather than use memory.  Photos e-mailed March 9, 2017.

OK, that now rings a bell.  Did you verify what the barrel date is?

That confirms that it has a Model 43 barrel on it.

Thank you, Bert.  What is the highest model 65 serial number you have recorded?  I assume the 1,007,501 is a parts “cleanup” rifle assembled in 1950 or later, but would appreciate any thoughts on this.

The last Model 65 was serial number 1007608 per the Polishing Room records, and it was serialized on 10/23/1945.  When regular production was halted to support WW II production efforts, serial numbers had reached 1007438. 

It is my belief that all serial numbers > 1007438 were produced to clean up remaining parts on hand, and they were assembled from late September 1945 through December 1950.  I believe that your rifle was one of them.

The highest serial number I have surveyed this far is 1007590, and I have a total of (5) rifles in the survey with serial numbers later than your rifle.

Is it a standard (plain) rifle ?
