I have my wife’s Grandfathers old Winchester model 67 Series one. It’s a single shot bolt action .22 long rifle. Is it too old to have a serial number, or where is it located? I believe it’s a 1934 or 1935 vintage.
thanks!

Looked at the online Winchester Serial Number List and model 67’s are not listed. Also, it was the gun control act of 1968 that required guns be serialized so maybe you’re right and that little rifle never had one.

It never had a serial number. I had one just like it. The grooved forearm was only used in 34-35.

652,538 made 1934 to 1963, none serial numbered. There are some ways that can narrow down the DOM within a decade or two by the features.
If the barrel is stamped 67, it was made between April 1934, and December 1937.
Stamped 67A, it was made between Jan.1938, and Dec.1963.
If it has the longer finger groove stock, it was made before May of 1935.

I have a Model 67 that was my fathers, which he said that he got it in '35 or '36 when he was 14 or 15. I just used it yesterday to dispatch a groundhog at 45 yards. I love that old gun and my son will get it one day. Yours looks like it is excellent shape...treasure it!
