The Winchester Model 65, .218 Bee - This model was a continuation of the Model 53 and was offered in three calibers: .25-20, .32-20, and .218 Bee. It had several improvements over the Model 53, namely the mag. capacity was increased to seven cartridges, forged ramp for front sight, and a lighter trigger pull. The Model 65 was available only in solid blued frame with blued barrel and pistol grip with plain walnut stock. Only about 5,700 of these rifles were built between 1933 and 1947.
Standard Rifle:
Exc.: $3500, Vgood: $2500, Good: $1000
Note: add 10% for bolt peep sight. Model 65's in .218 Bee left the factory with bolt peep sights as original equipment.
