I don't have an original Winchester Mod.63, but two years ago I bought the Mod.63 copy made by Taurus. I paid $189 for it and I love it. Two thiings I don't like, and I don't know if the Winchester's are like this, but there are no grooves in the receiver to mount a scope - strictly iron sights, and there is no way to mount a sling because of the cocking piece under the barrel. The gun only shoots one brand of ammo accurately - Federal 36gr. HP Value Pack ammo. It never jams and is a ton of fun. I'm sure the Winchester is a much better gun and is certainly a collectors item! Good luck with it, and if you shoot it, post the results!
