Manufactured in 1948, this rifle is a seldom seen smoothbore of the Winchester Model 62. As with all 62s, this rifle has a take down screw on the left side rear of the frame. It is equipped with a beaded blade front sight and adjustable sporting style rear sight. Below the rear sight on the left it is marked with the Winchester address, trademark, and Model 62 information along with "22 LONG R" and "SMOOTH BORE". The barrel and frame have the standard WP proof marks. The bottom of the frame and lower tang have the serial number. It is fitted with a 17 groove forearm and smooth straight wrist stock with a checkered Winchester buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Near excellent. The rifle retains 90% plus of the slightly faded original blue finish with some minor handling marks, small spots of residue, and slight cycling wear. The wood is fine with some slight scratches and a few minor pressure marks. The action is excellent, and the markings are clear throughout.
