Default 357 magnum

My first gun was a Crosman 357 revolver. it got me shooting and the first firearm I got was a 357 magnum Security Six. Got me into reloading and never looked back! My first rifle was a Browning A bolt in 30-06...DAMN! That gun would shoot 1/2 inch groups with it's favorite load....75 inch with old Lake City Match ammo! Sadly I no longer own any of them now. The Security Six shot one hole groups @ 25 yards! Life changes forced me to sell them off...but I have some new toys now!

1941 Winchester Model 61. Shoots like I bought it last month, (only I have to clean it a lot more).

You have a great rifle, it's one of the best .22 rifles ever made in America, or the world for that matter...!

I just bought a mint Winchester Model 61, that was made in 1937. What a great feeling rifle, a great shooting rifle.

Of the two, My Winchester Model 61, or my 1957 Winchester Model 62A, I don't really know which one feels the best. They both feel like I'm operating a finally tuned custom rifle. These Winchesters were made when firearms manufacturing, wasn't taking short cuts, in the manufacturing process.

I might be leaning a little towards the Winchester 62A, because of it's more antique design, and exposed hammer, than the Winchester Model 61.

Then, there are my two Winchester Model 63 semi-automatic .22 rifles. Another testimony to well designed, well built, a pleasure to own firearms.

All of these fine Winchester firearms may be spendy to own in these inflationary times, however, the satisfaction of having them and using them, far outweights the sting of the original price.

All of these rifles are just like they left the factory, untouched by gunsmiths, or rifle manglers of any ilk.

Bill

My first gun was an Iver Johnson 16 gauge single shot. Got it when I was 13. It was also my fathers first gun at 13 and it will be my boys first gun at 13. Of course I had a lot of BB guns before that but real guns the Iver. My first purchased gun was a Nornico Mak-90 brand new for about $325 I think.
