I have a 30-30 Winchester Mod. 64 that was my grandfathers gun. I would like to know the year it was made. Ser# 1111xxx. The gun is in great shape and I still hunt a couple times of year with it. Gandfather bought the gun new from a hardware store in Herkimer Co NY.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Your '64 was built in 1936 or 37. The model 64 was serial numbered in the number range for Model 94 guns until 1957. There were a total of 66,783 model 64's built from 1933 to 1957 when production of first models terminated.

The 64 is a keeper for accuracy and looks.

Picked up a couple more Model 64 rifles since my last post.Both are Deer Rifles.One is close to mint condition and the other has been used, but well cared for.I knew the man who bought it new and I was able to make a trade for it with his son.He always referred to the rifle , as the flat top Model 64 and called it,"His little sweetheart."

The flat top Model 64 has a flat top rear sight.They had to be ordered with the flat top sight or else they came with the regular round rear sight.
