Winchester 60 .22

I recently spent some time with my dad. We pulled out his old bolt action single shot .22. It was a Winchester 60. It was the first rifle I ever shot, but for the life of me couldn't remember who made it.

Googled them and I can't find much information on it. What do you guys know about them? Seems I remember this one wasn't all that accurate. When were they made?

Winchester made the Model 60 and 60A, pretty much the same rifle with some minor changes. They were similar in appearance to the Model 67. Single shot 22 S, L or LR. Cocked with a pull on the cocking piece. Terrible triggers, awful sights, but typically extremely accurate rifles.
