Re: Winchester Model 74
I am the original owner of a Winchester Model 74, Serial No. 251932A, which I purchased new at a general store in Montvale, Virginia, when I worked as a Timekeeper on a maintenance of way gang for the Norfolk & Western Railway in 1949. I paid $35 for it. It has been fired about 10 times in the 40's and 50's. It is chambered for .22 long rifle and feeds through the stock plate.
