    I stumbled upon a old Winchester 67 .22 LR-S-L . I did some research and it may be wrong but I believe it was made in the first production year. In 1934 the rifle was made with the stock to have finger grips and after 1935 they stopped and made solid stocks. Well this one has the finger grips and is in really good shape. I have looked online and saw some selling for over $1000. I would upload pics as soon as I can.

    I took it to a gun show once and a lot of the venders kept saying it wasn't a smooth bore and nothing like that existed. I originally took it to two different gun shops and they said it was a smooth bore. I took it to a friend of mine today who is a Retired SF Sniper and he told me it was a smooth bore so its up in the air. It does have a spin but the barrel is completely smooth there are no groves in the spirals at all. As I said before I will try and post some pictures as soon as possible. :)

    Is it marked Smooth Bore? 27" barrel? If so it does exist, and is worth at least
    double what a regular rifled 67 is equal condition would be worth.

    Bill nailed it. They brought that out in 1937. Barrel should be marked like this:

    The barrel isn't marked but it has the 27in barrel and the guy at the gun shop said they didn't say smooth bore on all of them. But then again he just said he was a certified NRA member and only proof was a paper card with his name and number that said NRA lol

    The smooth bores were smooth , like a shotgun. You said "It does have a spin". Spin means NOT a smooth bore. Looks like maybe a $200 rifle.

    OK- you are confusing us. You said "It has a spin"- and said "Bore is completely smooth". OK- WHAT has a "spin"?

    These two are an apparent contradiction. :confused::confused::confused:

    lol I know its confusing to me too I would love to send a picture of the barrel and make it easier. The best way I can put it is that the barrel has a spiral but there are no groves that I can see. I am going to take it to the closest gunsmith as soon as I can and see what he says about it.

    If you can see any kind of a spiral in that barrel then it is NOT a factory smooth bore.

    The Mdl. 67 "Boy's Rifle" was made in a smooth bore and a miniature target grade. The Miniture Target Grade 1942 had a 24" barrel and bead sights the same as the famous Winchester Mdl. 12 shotgun.
    There were some 300,000 of these inexpensive single shots made from 1937 until 1963. They sell for around $200 dollars in the rifled version.:)
