What is the history behind the Winchester model 67 22 rimfire?
The Winchester model 67, manufactured between 1937 and 1963 is a single-shot, bolt-action, rimfire .22 caliber rifle. The standard model bares a twenty-seven-inch tapered "sporter" barrel. Winchester also offered a "boys" model, with a twenty-five-inch barrel, for youngsters. The model 67 is capable of firing any .22 short, .22 long, or .22 long rifle cartridge. Approximately 383,000 of these popular rifles were produced, with only the later models (after the early 1940's) having serial numbers. The longer barrel of the standard model was a regular feature of most rimfire rifles until the 1960's. The longer barrel length was thought to be advantageous for at least three reasons. First of all, the longer sighting plane between the rear sights and the front sights aided in aiming. Secondly, the longer barrel reduces noise considerable, nearly muting the sound of standard velocity ammunition. Thirdly, before the advent of today's advanced external ballistics, it was commonly believed that a very long barrel was necessary to achieve game-killing velocities.
Your winchester model 1903 shoots a different ammo than regular .22cal rimfire made today.It is chambered for the .22 Winchester auto rimfire cartridge.This ammo can still be found I believe at Old western scrounger. Try www.old western scrounger.com.I believe they are 12.95 a box for 50 rounds,maybe a bit more.
There is no Winchester Model 77 in .284. The Model 77 is a .22 rimfire. The .284 Winchester is a centerfire cartridge made for the Models 88 and 100 in the early 1960's. It is interesting for having a relatively rare rebated rim (that's alliterative!) and continues to be popular with custom rifle makers because it offers power in a short case and action. Ruger made a few Model 77's in .284. Maybe that's what…
I will presume that you are actually inquiring about a Winchester Model 94 versus a Model 90 (which is a slide-action .22 caliber rimfire rifle). The collector value can only be assessed by a visual inspection & evaluation. Old Winchesters are very much like old classic automobiles... the graded condition and factory originality are the key factors in determining what they are truly worth.
It could be possable that your Winchester model 670 does not have a serial number.The gun control act of 1968 mandated that serial numbers be present on all firearms made.The Winchester model 670 was made from 1967-1973.If it was made after 1968 then it would be located on the receiver just behind the barrel.
