Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection
This model was a revamping of the first Winchester self-loading rifle, the Model 1903, which was chambered only for a rim fire caliber especially developed for it and known as the 22 Winchester Automatic cartridge. Later, due to the popularity of the 22 Long Rifle cartridge, there was a rather insistent customer demand that an additional chambering be furnished for the 22 Long Rifle cartridge. The Model 63 was automaatic (self-loading), with balanced breech bolt recoil operated mechanism. This means that the breech bolt contains a quantity of metal proportioned to the weight and velocity of the bullet so that the shock of the recoil is absorbed by the breech bolt, in a sense balancing the recoil. When the cartridge is fired, the bullet leaves the muzzle of the barrel before the breech bolt commences to move rearward. The design and weight of the breech bolt are proportioned so that there is no loss of velocity and energy of the bullet. With this self-loading type of mechanism, the trigger must be pulled and released for each shot. The Model 63 was discontinued in 1958. About 174,692 were made (Watrous: 1966).
