Winchester, Model 65, marked 218 BEE, MFG. 1939-47, SN: 1005749, Lever Action Rifle, 24'' Round barrel, mag holds 7 rounds, This is one of the rarest & fewest made Winchester models of all models produced, with only 5,704 total rifles. The rifle was evolved from the model 58 & production started 1933 with the 218 Bee caliber added in 1939. While .25-20 are the rarest, 218 Bee examples are in highest demand amongst collectors & command premium values. The original wood stocks on the example are excellent, with thinning original finish on forend & toe, There are some minor scuffs & dings to the pistol grip stock, along with a larger, single 1 1/2'' scratch on the left side. Metal is 90% blue on barrel, 85% turning plum on the receiver & 60% on lever. On the left side of receiver there is the faintest outline of several possible holes which may have once been filled. They are very difficult to make out & it is unknown if they are original tooling marks or screw holes that were expertly filled. Bore is excellent, bright & full rifling. The rare factory bolt tang sight is present, with blank filled rear dovetail & hooded front sight, factory metal buttplate, High condition example in the most desirable caliber. Collector's level rifle.* FFL or C&R Req. - Value: 3000 to 5000
