Winchester Model 62 - .22 LR. This is the original model as introduced in 1932 featuring the shorter pump.

The Winchester Model 62 was the third in a series of Slide-Action pump action rifles, that Winchester produced. It was the replacement for 1890 and 1906 models, when these two models were dropped from production in 1932. Like its two predecessors, the Model 62 had an exposed hammer. The Winchester Model 62 was produced from 1932 through 1958 with over 409,000 guns sold. Due to the popularity of the Model 62 copies and variants of it have been manufactured by several different companies.

Winchester Model 62A - .22 LR

This later variant of the Model 62 was introduced in January 1940 and has an improved breech bolt mechanism. The most obvious external difference is the change from a 5 3/4" long pump with 10 grooves to a longer 8" one with 17 grooves. The Model 62A is the more common variant, accounting for over three quarters of total production.

Rossi Model 62 SA

Rossi Model 62 SA - .22 LR

This is a modern copy of the Winchester Model 62A manufactured by Rossi and imported into the US by Interarms. The rifle was first produced in 1970, and ceased in 1998 when Rossi was purchased by Taurus, who manufactured their own version of the Model 62A. It was available with blued, nickel or full stainless steel finishes with round or octagonal barrels. It was available as the standard "SA" model with a 23" barrel, and the "SAC" with a 16.5" carbine barrel. It can be differentiated from a genuine Winchester gun by the presence of a "Rossi" logo on the left side of the receiver and by the fact it has a bulkier pump with 16 grooves (12 on the carbine models) rather than the Winchester's 17.
