Winchester 67 target
 
Today I took my oldest daughter and her friend out shooting. We shot 22s and then the girls shot bows. Here's a target that I shot with my Winchester 67 at 20 yards from the kneeling position. It's 5 shots with CCI Mini-Mags.

I was trying to hit it in the head but that still would have been a dead bunny. I'm pleased with the grouping, especially from the kneeling position.

My first rifle is a Winchester 67A. Dad gave it to me for my birthday in 1955 or so. What is a 67 Target? Do you have any pictures? Regards, Rick.

Rick, I meant a target shot with my Winchester 67. Mine is the standard with a 27" barrel. They did make what was called a miniture target rifle that had a 24" barrel. There was also a boys rifle with either a 20 or 22 inch barrel. This is what mine looks like.

Nice little rifle and nice necklace around the bunny's neck HB. That would be one dead bunny for sure.

I like those old single shot rifles, people don't realise the quality of of the Rem and Wins made in the old days. I restored a Remington 33 I bought for $30 and sold it for $100, the walnut stock was beautiful when I finished it with True Oil and it would clover the shots at 25 meters. Pity I never took a picture of it once I finished it.:huh:

The 67 was a tradition in my family.
My father bought one, with the fluted stock, ala wwI springfield, it finally wore out the piece that connects the trigger and firing pin and was abandoned somewhere as we did not know about Numrich parts supply.
Late I found another , with a steel tube Weaver 4x, $20 at the local gun shop, I still have it and it is my very favorite .22.
It has the beaver tail stock.
I shall post a picture later.
