Winchester '06, 22
Thank you. (1912)I figured the rifle must be about 1911 or 12. With Google, I couldn't find a precise manufacture date for serial 282383. It has a smooth wood forearm. It seems the later models had a grooved forearm. The rifle is looking better. The rust spots are not deep, and it is cleaning up nicely. It will never look pristine, but I think it will have a fine antique look and feel when I get it finished. I love that action. It is working perfectly smooth today. I also have a 1965 model 94, 30-30. It is in great shape, but the action is not nearly as smooth as that old 22.
