Produced from 1932 through 1958 with over 409,000 guns sold, the Model 62A is a light, simple to use rimfire rifle. Like its predecessors, the 1906, the slide-action Model 62 is chambered for short, long, and long-rifle interchangeably, a feature that helped to assure the rifle's success. The 62 is a take-down rifle fitted with a 23 inch round and tapered barrel. The gun has a straight-grip walnut stock and a grooved slide handle. Winchester changed the name of the rifle to the 62A in 1940 when the breech was updated so that the slide pump forearm increased to 8" and the number of grooves cut into the wood on the forearm were increased from 10 to 17. This rifle features an elevation adjustable rear sight with a blade front sight. Its wood and metal are in very good condition and its bore is in good condition.
