    Received from my father a Winchester Bolt action .22 Short/Long/Long Rifle Model 320, clip fed with sling swivels. The stock was modified and a recoil butt pad added. Other than those flaws the rifle looks in very good to excellent condition. Can anyone give me an idea of value. Marked Winchester, West Haven, Conn. Grooved receiver for scope rings. Any help will be appreciated.

    If I recall, they were made in Australia, and only sold under the Winchester name for a few years in the early '70s. The company that manufactured them there was sold, and the former owner moved to Oregon, where he started up Kimber and manufactured the same design.

    No idea what the value might be. They aren't common, but if it has been modified, some of the collector value is gone. It should be an exceptional shooter.

    Thanks for the information. It seems to be a quality firearm with nice amenities like serrated front sight ramp and gold bead and serrated receiver top. Guess I'll just have to get a scope on it and see how it shoots. Take care.

    Few weeks ago I bought a pre-MIM S&W model 686 in stainless and an Ithaca Model 37 12 gauge shotgun as part of a 6 gun deal.
    I really wanted the Smith but couldn't get it without buying all six guns that included a Winchester Model 320 less the magazine. Its in excellent unmodified condition. It's a handsome rifle and seems to be of high quality. The action is buttery smooth.
    The barrel is stamped:
    "Winchester .22S, L or LR Model 320, New Haven, Conn."
    After I removed the stock to for cleaning/inspection I found the action had another stamping:
    "Winchester Omark, Australia"
    I also found the trigger has an overtravel adjustment, screw & lock nut.
    The biggest problem with it is it did not come with a magazine. I bought a 10 round mag off of GunBroker for $21 shipped but it doesn't work very good, probably one of the TripleK mags that CTD was offering.
    I see there are mags avail on GunBroker for Kimber model 82 that are supposed to be the same as the 320 for 50$ a pop...used!
    I found the 320 to be at least as accurate as my new ordinary Ruger 10/22 out to 40 yards. I am going to mount a scope and see how it does farther out. My gun club's max rifle range is only out to 130 yards but plenty for a .22LR.

    BTW: Those stampings on the barrel, is that more accuratly referred to as the 'roll mark' ?

    Good luck with it. Let me know how your's shoots once you get it dialed in. I think brownell has the 10 round mags. I looking for a second regular factory 5 rounder. Take care.
