1988.8.350 | ca. 1935 | L: 42.25 in, Barrel length: 22.75 in | Due to wide use in World War I, the bolt action rifle became popular in America during the 1920s. A concurrent interest in precision small bore competitive shooting led Winchester to produce the Model 52. Designed by Thomas Crossley Johnson, the Model 52 has become the leading arm in small bore accuracy. It is available in a variety of styles and weights, and has a magazine capacity of 5 cartridges. This Model 52 rifle is one of a sample lot made in Winchester's experimental shop, before fixtures were ready for regular production. It was made in 1919 for a shoot at Caldwell, NJ, and placed in the factory collection on October 25, 1921. Special features include: snap-on sling mounts, serrated trigger for pull and over travel, and receiver tapped for scope mounts. | Needs inscription and dimensions. | Lyman rear sight.

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.

1988.8.653 | ca. 1965 | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 770 Bolt Action Rifle was introduced in 1969 in both standard and magnum sporting rifles, and in nine calibers. Designed for sportsmen who wanted a bolt action rifle with the features long associated with the Model 70, but at an economical price, the Model 770 was planned to fill a gap somehwere between the popular, higher priced Model 70 and the Model 670, a basic and inexpensive bolt action rifle marketed in 1964. The M/770 was dropped from the line in 1972; a total of 20,938 were manufactured (Barnes: 1980). | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.

1988.8.351 | 1949-1957 | L: 42.5 in, Barrel length: 24.375 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | Authorization for the development of a new bolt action repeating rifle with a detachable box magazine was given on May 31, 1944. This model was to be developed as a sort of a Junior Winchester Model 70, to handle the 218 Bee, 22 Hornet, 25-20 Winchester, and 32-20 Winchester cartridges. Factory records show the first delivery of M/43 rifles to warehouse stock on February 4, 1949. The Model 43 was the first postwar development in Winchester center fire rifles. It embodied the well-proven principles of the famous smooth, fast Winchester bolt action that adapted it to that highly popular sport known as pest and small game shooting. Discontinued in 1957, about 62,617 were made (Watrous: 1966). The right side of this Model 43 is completely cut away from the wrist to the rear sight, exposing the bolt and trigger mechanism and magazine arrangement.

The M/60A Target rifle was a well constructed and accurate arm. But because it was too lightweight to meet the demand for a low-priced accuracy rifle, it never had a large sale.
