The Winchester Model 62 replaced the Model 1890 and Model 1906 when they were dropped from the line in 1932. An updated version of earlier slide-action .22 rifles, the Model 62 is chambered in .22 Short, Long, Long Rifle, or .22 WRF. The Model 62 "gallery guns" have "Winchester" stamped on the left side of the receiver and are chambered in .22 Short only. Model 62 gallery rifles have a triangular loading port on the loading tube, not regular models do not have. Model 62A has a change to the breach bolt mechanism, occurring around serial number 98000. The letter "A" then appeared behind the serial number. Production ended in 1958. Collectors put a premium on pre-WW II guns with small slide handles.

The stock is plain walnut with a straight grip and grooved slide handle. The receiver and barrel are both blued and all guns are takedown versions. There is a visible hammer on the gun. Around 409,000 guns were sold.

Since your gun was made in 1936 making it pre-WW II, you can add 30% to the values below.

Retail values for a regular Model 62/62A:

Excellent: $675-$1,500
Very Good: $375-$475
Good: $250-$300
Fair: $155-$200
Poor: $130

My model 11 has a pheasant inscribed on the side and has a vented barrel with two different ends that can be interchanged. Does this make a difference in the price. I would say it is in good to excellent cond..

That sounds like a Model 11E (Expert), which has a hand-checkered walnut stock and scroll engraving with game scenes engraved in a panel.

Retail values:

Excellent: $4,200-$5,400
Very Good: $3,000-$3,600
Good: $2,150-$2,400

I just noticed that the stock has the letter "FJA" on the side of the stock and panel say "military finish". Model 11 is inscribed on the on the chamber release. Do you still think this is a 11 expert?

Expert:  Philip Van Cleave replied 1 year ago.
Probably not.

Can you attach some photos of the gun (use the paper clip icon to do so)?

Unfortunately I can't send a picture at this time. The serial # XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNNand I notice that it has a duck inscribed on one side of panel and pheasant on the other.

Expert:  Philip Van Cleave replied 1 year ago.
OK - that's just a regular Model 11. Your gun should look similar to this:
