The High Road may be better........I'm a huge C&R fan myself, but sometimes I feel like Calguns should be called "CalAR15.com"

All the best rifles in the world were made before the AR-15 was.........IMHO that is!

Cool! I have the same or similar model. Mine would start jamming after 150 rounds or so. It's a fun gun to shoot. I don't think mine has a serno either. It must be over 50 years old because my uncle got it before I was born.

Try Numrich Gunparts

Here's your model:
Winchester Model 77

Good luck!

Before the year 1968 Winchester did not give serial numbers to many of their less expensive .22 rimfire rifles because it was not required by law and it added expense. So your rifle probably has no serial number.

Wikipedia says that the Model 77 was manufactured from 1955-1963.

The same Wikipedia article has a section where disassembly is discussed...

I got a Win 77 tube feed new in 1963.
My father got it whole sale through a buyer where he worked.
Retail was $55 and Winchester prices were at that time franchised, but the model 77 must have been on close out, because I got mine for more like $35.

But it was a terrible gun with sand in it.
I got rid of it in 1970.

I now own ~~ (11) 22 semi autos in rifle or pistol, and only one, a Marlin 88 can compete for the piece of junk status that my old Win 77 had.

Jacques, go to rimfirecentral.com and check out the Winchester sub-forum. A quick search should get you some more info. I read a thread about the Model 77 stating that the non-serial numbered rifles were actually the newer manufacture. Two digit date code can be found stamped on the bottom of the barrel just fore of the receiver, once you've removed the furniture.

Did it work better once the sand was out? I've read and also experienced that these guns don't like much lubrication at all as it tends to gum things up quickly. Once I minimized on that the rifle worked flawlessly. Now they are worth $250 - $300.

Winchester Model 77's were serial numbered, front right corner of the receiver until late 1955, then moved to the left side, then toward the rear. There's claims they stopped stamping them in 1959, but I have the polishing room records and serial numbers from 1955 to 1963. There was 217,180 made, more clip fed than tube fed.
If it's numbered, post it here:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=410211 and I can date it for you.
