1988.8.652 | ca. 1965 | L: 39.25 in, Barrel length: 20 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 320 repeating, clip loading, bolt action 22 rim fire rifle was introduced by Winchester in 1971 simultaneously with the Model 310 single shot rifle. Essentially, the Model 320 rifle is a modified version of the Model 310 with a clip loading feature to make it a repeater. A companion 22 Magnum rim fire rifle, the Model 325, was announced, but never produced. The M/320 was last listed in 1974 (Barnes: 1980). The modified stock on this Model 320 indicates that it is a prototype, and not a final production piece. | magazine/WINCHESTER/22 S.L AND L.R./barrel and receiver/[Winchester proofmarks]/ | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.

1988.8.333 | ca. 1965 | L: 42.75 in, Barrel length: 22 in, H: 6 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Winchester Model 670 was introduced in 1966 with three versions available--Carbine, Sporting Rifle, and Magnum Sporting Rifle--and in seven center fire calibers. The M/670 was designed to fill the needs of outdoorsmen seeking a dependable bolt action arm for hard day-in-day-out use, combining accuracy with style and economy. It features: recessed bolt face to completely enclose and support the cartridge head for ultimate safety; free-floating barrel for best accuracy; wide serrated trigger with greater finger bearing surface for improved trigger control. Red indicator shows when the rifle is cocked. Two-position safety locks the firing pin when in the safe (rear) position, but not the bolt, to allow safe removal of cartridges from the magazine. The safety is off when pushed fully forward. The Model 670 was discontinued in 1979. A total of 287,648 guns were produced from 1966-1979 in Winchester's New Haven plant. This experimental Model 670 was made for the possible development of a .222 Remington rifle. | left side of barrel/222 REM./right side of receiver/902949/left side of receiver/WINCHESTER/TRADE MARK/ | Winchester R & D label on left side of stock./Gun. 3/label on underside of stock; masking tape on butt.

1988.8.378 | 1967-1972 | L: 40 in, Barrel length: 19.375 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 121 Single Shot 22 rim fire was designed to provide beginning and young shooters with a bolt action system that would provide a safe, efficient and reliable first firearm. In addition to handling one cartridge at a time, the rifle has a safety catch that automatically engages itself in the "safe" position each time the bolt handle is raised. The rifle cannot be discharged after each loading until the safety has been manually depressed. Three different versions of the basic model were available. The Youth model offers a short buttstock for the younger shooter; the Standard has a stock of conventional length for the average man-sized youngster or adult. In addition, a third, Deluxe, version has a standard length stock with the extra features of a Monte Carlo, fluted comb and sling swivels. The Deluxe rifle also has a special trigger mechanism and a ramped bead post front sight. The M/121 was introduced in 1967 as part of a matched family of 22 rim fire rifles and dropped from the line in 1973. A total of 72,561 were made (Barnes 1880). | Needs inscription. no written record for this firearm. | 1988.8.378v2.jpg | 1988.8.378v1.jpg | bolt action | firearm | rifle | remainder blued | plastic buttplate | round barrel | barrel | mauser type bolt | rear sight | finish | prototype | sporting | receiver grooved for scope mounts | stock | stained | aluminum trigger | adjustable flip-up v-notch | one-piece hardwood | semi-pistol grip | monte carlo profile | blade/bead | front sight | single shot | Winchester Repeating Arms Co., New Haven, CT
