I hadn’t spotted this one until it sold today.  Interesting.  Desirable.  However I will confess I’d rather have a M55 in .38-55.  Not that I don’t like this rifle. Anyway, the description says the 1938 Winchester Salesman pamphlet states the .38-55 was available in the M64.  I never knew that.  What are the chances this one is original?

Steve,

Based on the pictures provide in the auction listing, I added it to the Model 64 research survey as a “most likely original” rifle.  The only way to know for sure would require a hands on detailed inspection (involving some disassembly).

I suspect that we will know… as soon as it gets relisted on Gunbroker or Guns International.

Any idea what the 25-25 Model 64 Carbine sold for?  My computer expertise limits my search abilities.  Thanks  RDB
