Welcome to the Winchester Arms Collectors Association Forum. We are a relatively new, but growing forum site, so please, join the forum, all you need is a username, e-mail address and password and you can post questions and answers or just generally communicate with other Winchester or antique fire-arms hobbyists about Winchesters, Henry’s, Volcanic arms, memorabilia, or anything pertaining to antique, collectable, or contemporary firearms.

The forum rules are simple:

1. Use your best judgment about appropriate subject matter and language. Everyone is at their own level of expertise and experience and the WACA forum is here to provide communication and information from experienced as well as inexperienced collectors from all over the world.

2. Indecent language, mocking or ridiculing members will not be tolerated, and any such posts will be deleted and the offending member may be blocked from the forum.

Thank you for checking us out, and come back often!

Hello, I would like to introduce myself, my main interest is the Winchester Model 71. I have a lot to learn and I thought this would be the best place to start. I spoke to Bert Hartman and if everyone is as helpful and knowledgeable as he is then I think I came to the right place,..Gerry

Welcome, Gerry. Hope you’ll feel at home here. I’m a fan of the 71 and the 348 cartridge but quite honestly I enjoy working with every centerfire cartridge I’ve explored and may very well have fallen off the deep end with Winchester rimfires.

What draws you to the 71, Gerry? Is it the cartridge or the rugged and handsome 1886/71 action? Or something else? Both?

Hi Mike, I was always a fan of the 71, the history, looks and the power of the 348, I'm fascinated by the craftsmanship of the prewar 71s

Welcome! Hands down a great place to learn. Having said that, don’t  be shocked if that ‘ mostly interested in model 71’s,’ grows to’ mostly anything winchester’.....

Looks like you were absolutely correct, I've developed an interest in the Model 64, this could develop into a very expensive hobby!
