    I have a Winchester Model 290. I have looked all over the gun and don't see any serial numbers anywhere. Where are they located ?

    It's a pre-1968 rifle, which usually do NOT have serial numbers.

  3. Before the Gun Control Act of 1968 (went into effect Dec. 1968) many mass produced .22 rifles did not have a serial number.

    There is no legal restrictions on these pre-68 guns today.

    After Dec. 1968 all new guns needed serial numbers.
