Our Assessment: Produced from 1905-1935 and with 731,852 manufactured, this was quite a successful gun for Winchester. Large groups of serial numbers were skipped resulting in serial numbers reaching 848,000 This was the second pump action .22 produced by Winchester, designed by John Browning and is known as a Gallery Gun. This one is mechanically sound and looks near pristine! This rifle appears to have been used very little and would be right at home in a collection.
