I am looking at a Winchester model 64 deluxe in 30 WCF.  Great condition but it has “DV” stamped on the bottom of the receiver right in front of the trigger.  Is blued over and appears all factory.  Anyone know anything about what this might be?

Lonnie,

The “DV” is an inspector’s stamp. All of the Model 64 rifles (and Model 94 Carbones) manufactured in the from the late 1920s through the early 1960s have inspector’s stmps in that same general location.

What is the serial number on the Model 64 Deer Rifle you are looking at?

I appreciate it greatly.  Currently, I have 3,449 Model 64 rifles documented in my research survey.

One more quick question.  Should a 1948 model 64 be 30 WCF or 30-30?

Yes it should be. 

Winchester did not begin the change from the older “30 W.C.F.” caliber marking to newer “30-30 WIN.” marking until the March/April 1950 timeframe (in the 1676000 serial number range). 

The earliest serial number I have documented with the “30-30 WIN.” caliber marking is 1676337, and the latest with the “30 W.C.F.” marking is S/N 1793169 (1951).  It took Winchester nearly a full year to use up the older style marked barrels.  By the time serial number 1692600 was reached, the “30-30 WIN.” marking was the predominantly used barrel marking.
