My deceased grandfather handed down a pump action Winchester 22 caliber rifle to my son and we're trying to identify year of manufacture.

]The markings we've been able to locate on the rifle are as follows:"Winchester (Trademark) .22 S,L, or L.R. - Model - 270" stamped/engraved on the left side of the barrel immediately in front of the rear sight, followed by a "B" encircled and stamped/engraved on the barrel. A separate small encircled /stamped/engraved P/W is located on the front left top side of the receiver .Serial Number: 467649 (located on bottom of receiver body just behind the wood pump action handle)

seeking to date the rifle, i.e. year it was made.

You may try calling Winchester. The only info I could find was they were made from 1963-1973 and the serial numbers were non-sequential. I have called them before and they are great people and very friendly on the phone. Sorry I could not find out more. Here is where I got my info.
