The Winchester Model 62 is a slide-action repeating rifle produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in the early 20th century.

The gun replaced the Model 1906. It was a take down rifle that was able to accept most .22 caliber cartridges. [1][2]

Around serial number 98000 (1940) minor changes in the mechanism lead to the model designation 62A. They remained in production until 1958. [3]
