Belle came home from her mother's house the other day and took a rifle out of the car. A Winchester Model 67. It had belonged to her step-dad, and before that, it had belonged to a family friend. For the past decade or longer, it had languished in the family gun case.
The Winchester 67 is a bolt action, single shot rimfire rifle, chambered in .22 Short, Long, or Long Rifle.It was the "value-priced" line in the Winchester family, selling for the exorbitant price of $5.50 when first produced in 1934. It stayed in production until 1960 when it sold for $18.95 MsRP.
The Model 67 was produced without serial numbers, which makes dating it a little sketchy, but it shows a nickeled bolt, a nickeled safety, and a finger-gtooved for-end. From what I have learned about the little rifle, I believe that it was manufactured sometimes between April, 1934 and December 1935 After that, they discontinued the finger-grooved stock.
It needs to be cleaned and oiled, and in time it will be fed appropriately ad used to train new shooters. Belle asked what it is worth today.
I told her, "It's probably still worth $5.50."
