Re: Winchester model 88
Easiest way to tell pre-64 on those is the checkering pattern. Cut checkering is pre 64, Oak leaf and scrolls is post 64, unless someone changed the stock. Fantastic guns, very accurate with a good trigger job, which is possible, but very tricky. Factory spec. as a non-adjustable trigger, but it can be done by the right gunsmith. I never felt the need to get the trigger done on any of mine, but have handled and shot some fine custom ones that would rival most bolt guns. Treasure it !
