I am curious if anyone has an idea the percentage of prewar to postwar model 64 in 25-35 caliber

Check the winter 2023  Collector article by Bert Hartman – lots of details there but not sure if it includes what you are looking for.

Keep in mind that Winchester discontinued the 25-35 WCF as of 1951 for the Model 64.

As of this time, I have documented (146) Pre-WW II Model 64s in 25-35 WCF, and just (35) of them in the Post-WW II years.

I think a pre-war standard grade gun with a 20″ barrel has always been the hardest 64 to find, especially with condition. Do your survey numbers support that?

No they do not.  The number of pre-war 20″ Model 64s is significantly greater than the post-war years.

Currently, I have documented (246) pre-war standard 20″ rifles versus just (46) in the post-war years.  The same holds true for the 20″ Deer Rifles, (135) pre-war, and just (30) of them in the post-war years.  In total, (381) pre-war 20″ rifles, and just (76) post-war (83.4% versus 16.6%).
