About Model 64 Winchester Rifles - In 1933, Winchester introduced the Model 64 lever-action rifle as an evolved version of the 53 and 55 Winchester rifles. The Model 64 was available in .30 WCF (30-30), .32 WS, .25-35, and .219 Zipper (1938-1941) calibers. This rifle could be ordered with a round 24 or 20 inch barrel, the wood walnut, plain or checkered, with a pistol-grip stock and shotgun buttplate. The frame and barrel were blued and had a solid feature with a forged front sight.
The Model 64 was manufactured through 1957 with approximately 67,000 guns produced during the 24-year production period. The Model 64 was reintroduced again briefly from 1972-1973, and all rifles were 30-30 caliber with a 5-shot 2/3 magazine tube, 24" barrel, open sight and plain pistol-grip walnut stock.
Really NICE!I grew up shooting a Winchester Model 64 in 25-35 from age of 12-16. It belonged to my Great Grandfather and my father still keeps it in his gun cabinet.
My uncle shot a model 94 in 30-30 and I always kinda fely like my lever action was the "Mini-van of Levers" because of the grip and the short magazine.
