I have a very late standard model 64 in 219 Zipper that was serialized in 1950 with a Lyman model 56 receiver sight.  I believe the underside of the barrel is marked “38” and is believed to be a parts clean-up gun.  Bert–I think you should have this one in your survey.

Don,

The sight on your rifle appears to be a Lyman No. 66A (which replaced the No. 56 in 1953 or thereabouts).  I did have it listed, but with a “37” dated barrel?

Thanks for the sight correction Bert.  This rifle was handed down to me from my dad’s collection.  The “37” barrel date is probably correct–it’s been a long time since dad and I pulled the forearm off.  Dad passed over 2 1/2 years ago already.

Rick,

On a 219 Zipper rifle that was factory ordered for the 22-H open rear sight, Winchester omitted the milled grooves and drilled & tapped holes require to mount a No. 98A bolt peep sight.  If you find a 219 Zipper rifle that was milled & tapped for the bolt peep sight but has any other type of rear sight on it, somebody took the bolt peep sight off of it and replaced it with a different rear sight.  More often than not, the bolt peep sight was removed to mount a scope (which was later removed).

Bert

  

One I know of has no milled grooves or drilled & tapped bolt holes. Rear 22-H only and advised it’s original which now seems more likely. Thanks for the info Bert.
