View Full Version : Front barrel band dilemma!

November 22, 2010, 06:05 PM
I have a good friend that has a Winchester Model 57 which is a .22 bolt action rifle.(old and getting rare) He has been trying to get a front barrel band for the rifle for many years and I told him I would ask online if anyone knows where he could find the band. He told me that a front barrel band from a model 75 will not fit. Anyone know where I could pick up the correct band? I have searched several parts dealers with no success! Thanks! Ken

Hard one, you might try calling or e-mailing Brownells tech support.

And I own a Model 57 if you need dimensions taken off of it?
