Winchester Model 62A .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Winchester 62A Pump screams "Classic American rifle" from all its steel and walnut, and simple lines. Our mid-1950s specimen was well preserved. Though the Model 62 didn't have match-rifle accuracy, it worked perfectly with Shorts and Longs as well as with Long Rifles, and shotwell enough for loads of fun. We liked it, and thought it would be an excellent investment , if you can find one. We also thought it was durable enough to provide many years of shooting fun.

Many a custom rifle would benefit if it had as graceful a trigger guard as that on the Winchester 62. The trigger was a dream, having a reasonable pull weight and zero creep. The hammer was well serrated for good control.
The big button above the trigger guard was a screw that let you take the rifle into two chunks. The screw stayed with the rifle. This rifle had a slick action unmatched by either of the two new pump rifles.
The 62's action looked like that of a lever-action. The rear sight was adjustable via a spring and stepped wedge. This old rifle showed excellent workmanship and very little wear.
