    1952 Winchester Model 70 .270WIN (PICS)

    I was looking for a deer rifle and stumbled on this beauty in my LGS. Gun looks new except for added recoil pad. Never owned a 270 but look forward to getting it out and shooting it. Figured for $749 out the door I couldn't go wrong with a Pre-64 Winchester Model 70 that is almost 70 years old in this condition. I was gonna pay the same or more for a new rifle that would not be anywhere near this quality.

    Sah..Wheat!! It don't get any better than that. Built today, that kind of quality would cost thousands! Good on you!

    Where deer hunters gather the pre 64 Model 70 is the only rifle I know of that creates awe from other hunters when it is taken out of the gun case. Not everyone has one but everyone seems to know what they are. Truly a classic that has passed the test of time. That's a good price you gave, they usually go for 4 to 600 dollars more in good shape.

    I just picked one up myself. It's not pre 64 but I love it.
    Pick up a few boxes' of 30-06 this afternoon. Going to shoot it this weekend.
    Took the bolt apart, Cleaned and lube it appears to be unfired. Mint not a mark on it.
    It need's a little trigger work,to heavy, I'm going to order lighter spring I saw on you tub
    It cut's the weight in about half. I always wanted a model 70.
    Good luck with yours it's a beauty!

    I thought it was cheap too. It was a consignment gun and I think the old man selling it was needing money. Gun shop owner told me the old man's dad was the original owner. No scratches and very little wear on the blue and no noticeable dings on the stock. I don't think he shot it more than a few times. Wish it had original butt-plate, which is another reason i got it cheaper, but i'm gonna shoot it, so i will probably be glad it has it at the range. He had another Winchester Model 71 levergun made in 1949 on sale that was mint he would take $1200 for. I would love to have it too, but ammo is ridiculous for that thing. .348 win is >$2.00/rd unless you hand-load it.
