SOURCE: winchester model 88. with the trigger assembly

Less Than Perfect
The Model 88 had its faults. The trigger moves with the lever and the resulting linkage to the sear results in a rather spongy, creepy trigger break. If you want to see your gunsmith turn pale, waltz into the shop with an M88 and ask for a crisp three-pound trigger.

If you already have taken the gun apart, don't be afraid to hone the parts on a stone , keep them flat, you don't want anything rounded off. Especially the sear. I found that quote up top from a winchester sight,

The best way to determine the market is to search the Internet or E-bay for your rifle and see what prices are offered.

SOURCE: hammer will not stay cocked

when it ***** there a spring ratchet inside handle, and it catches and stays back, some are filed down so they cant fire auto but usually in assault rifles, so either your hammer or the ratchet inside broke off or someone filed it down.

Winchester Model 62 Pump Action Rifles The ultimate gallery gun

Several models of Winchester 62 pump action rifles. Top to bottom: 1906, 20-inch round barrel; 1890 octagonal barrel; prewar M62 with scope; postwar M62A.
Winchester Model 62 left side receiver. The huge "Winchester" rollmark may mean its a gallery gun.
No less than six generations of the Model 62 were made from 1932 until 1958. Three of these are pre-WWII while the other three are post-1945. The easiest way to tell postwar versions is that they have a 17-groove 8.75-inch foregrip while prewar versions have a 5.75-inch 10-groove grip. After 1940, the Model was modified with an improved hammer spring and dubbed the 62A, so if you see a 62A mark on your Winchester pump rifle, that is an easy way to tell that it was made after that year. The value of standard Model 62/62As start at about $300 for shooter grade guns and go as high as $1000.

Anything you can tell me about Winchester Model 97 Ser# 201413. when it was made and value.


The Winchester Model 1897 evolved from the Winchester Model 1893. The Model 1897 and 1893 were both designed by John Browning. The Model 1897 is an external hammer shotgun lacking a trigger disconnector. This means that the user can hold the trigger down while cycling the shotgun and once the action is returned to battery the gun fires. The gun itself is classified as a slide action pump shotgun. It was the first truly successful pump-action shotgun produced. Throughout the time period the Model 1897 was in production, over a million of the type were produced in various grades and barrel lengths. 16-gauge guns had a standard barrel length of 28 inches, while 12-gauge guns were furnished with 30-inch length barrels. Special length barrels could be ordered in lengths as short as 20 inches, and as long as 36 inches. Along with various grades and barrel lengths, the Model 1897 came in two different chamberings. One was the 12 gauge and the other was the 16 gauge. The shells should be of the 2-¾ inch or 2-? inch model. Any shells larger are not recommended. An average Model 1897 held 5 shotgun shells in the magazine tube. After including the one shell that could be held in the chamber, the average Model 1897 held a total of 6 shotgun shells. However, this would vary from grade to grade. When working the action of the Model 1897 the forend (fore grip) is pulled back, forcing the breech bolt to the rear which extracts and then ejects the spent shell while simultaneously cocking the external hammer by pushing it to the rear. When the forend is slid forward again, the breech bolt pushes a fresh shell into the gun's chamber and locks into place. This action of sliding the forend back and forth (pumping) is why the gun is classified as a slide action (or pump) gun.

I have a winchester pump 22 short with a j stevens


First, you need to know what you have. It can't be a Winchester with a Steven barrel.
It could be a 1890 or 1906 model.
Value depends 95% on condition.

Have a winchester 1906 pump .22lr, when the bolt is pumped back to cock the hammer, the hammer falls as the bolt is going back to battery. Now if I pull the hammer back to cock and then run the bolt the...


The cocking mechanism is not pushing the bolt back far enough to reach the purchase point of the hammer. I do not know if that model has any way to adjust the range of bolt travel, but it could likely be worn metal just barely falling short of the mark.

Can you find any noticable play in any parts between the cocking mechanism and the bolt?

Have you tried pushing the bolt itself back (inserting something in front of the bolt and push back) to see if you can make the hammer catch in that manner, to narrow the problem down to just the cocking mechanism?

You may need to have a reputable gunsmith look at it, which would also be much safer than trying to repair it yourself, as well as safer than trying to use it while in this unreliable state. If the hammer toches a round just a little too hard before locked in fully chambered position, you could blow out the extractor pin or even worse, as I'm sure you could imagine.

Should not be happening, as both hammers should be cocked as the receiver is closed.
I would disassemble and reassemble the shotgun barrel to receiver.
Here is a link to the owner's manual:

Perhaps when disassembled, you will discover a cocking rod is binding, bent, or something. I really can't guess what it could be.

OLD PUMP WINCHESTER RIFLE - THE SAFETY BUTTON APPEARS TO BE STUCK, YOU CANNOT FIRE THE RIFLE.


Model 61, 62a, the 61 is hammerless and the 62a has a hammer, the safety on the 62 is the hammer, the safety on the 61 is a cross bolt, sounds like it is gummed up, or busted, I would take out the trigger houseing and clean it up and check it out. If the cross bolt is stuck, something is blocking it, like the hammer at half c0ck, try pushing the trigger forward and see if it moves, whatever happens, I would still take it apart and clean it, don't screw it up, it is a very collectable rifle.
