Usually the difference between series like this is listed "minor improvements" but this time I actually found something in the Blue Book of Gun Values. "The Model 69 was cocked by the closing motion of the bolt and had a non-swept back bolt handle, whereas the 69A was cocked by the opening motion of the bolt and had a swept back bolt handle."

Sometime between 1937 - 1963. Winchester did not serialize the Model 69/69A, therefore it is not possible to determine a precise year of manufacture.

Winchester did not serialize the model 69,69A.I can say that the model 69A was made during the years 1935-1963,with a total production of 355,000.

Model 69A of Winchester was first introduced in November 1937. All 69 models were manufactured without serial numbers and production was stopped with to replacement model.

No serial numbers were assigned to the model 69 and 69A. The 69 was introduced in 1935 and the 69A in 1937, so the 69 may well have been made in one of the first 3 years. Don Schimpff Redding, CA the 69a production was ceased in 1963

The model 69 uses a magazine. Try gun shops, gun shows and on line auctions

Winchester never made such a weapon as you ask about.

Up to just shy of 2 miles.

i have the same gun, IT was just handed down to me from my step father. I have been trying to find info on the net but havent had much luck. I have read that the Winchester model 69a was manufacturered between 1937 and 1960s. but i have also read that they stopped making them in the 50s.MarkAnswerThe 69 and 69A were manufactured from 1935 to 1963. Since they were not serialized, you will not be able to find the exact year of manufacture.

By the features and comparison to known dated models. They were not serial numbered, except for some foreign sales. the Model 69 was made 1935-1963.

no the law requiring guns to have serial numbers did not go into effect till late 60's

The Winchester model 69 is valued at between 85 dollars for a gun with 60% of its original finish remaining,up to 300 dollars for a gun with 90% of its original finish remaining.If you have the target model you can add 40% to the above mentioned values.You could also add 20% to the values if you have a gun with the grooved receiver model 69A.

Open the bolt, hold the trigger back, pull the bolt out

well, I'm not much of a gun person, but I'm sitting here with my Winchester 69A. Just playing with it a little, you can only engage the safety when the gun is cocked. The safety is in the "fire" position when it is in the forward position and it is in the safe position when pulled back.

There is no serial number but the dates of manufacture were 1937-1963 for the 69A. Mine has short, long, and long rifle spelled out, ans some that I've seen(later years?) have this abreviated.
