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.
