Winchester 69A 22 S/L/LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Gun Tests Grade: B. Lots of drop to the stock dates this old Winchester, as does the 0.75-inch B-4 Weaver scope. These scopes were common in the mid-1950s. This one still works perfectly today. The stock here has been altered in shape, and had serious checkering done to it. Normally the Model 69s don’t look quite so handsome. These old Winchesters are not often found for sale. That’s a 25-inch barrel.

The trigger guard blends into the stock, through a simple re-inletting process. On the forend the checkering wraps completely around the stock. Nice checkering like this can cost way more than the rifle. This is essentially a custom rifle, and could not be bought for the $400 average price of a 69A today. In addition to the stock work, the rifle had a trigger job, giving it a great pull. The stock reshaping makes the butt and pistol grip flow together.
