This gun did not sell during the first auction, I want at least $1,000 for it, feel free to contact me if you have an interest.
I have really enjoyed owning this rifle, I restored the stock myself, the wood is a beautiful walnut hardwood it has a fantastic grain to it. I take some pride in restoring stocks and it really shows on this piece. When I got this rifle to wood was not nicked up at all, but the gloss had bubbled in places, so I did not take hardly any wood off the gun. I took the finish off and the stain out. The bluing is great as you can see by the pictures, and its in original condition
This Pre-64 Winchester Model 70 30-06 rifle has a 24" barrel, the stock has 13 5/8" LOP and the serial number is #551470, all the serial numbers match up. The hood for the front sight is missing, everyone takes them off and loses them when they put a scope on. Its rare indeed to find one with the hood still on it.
I am not a collector, I'm a shooter, and after refinishing this rifle I realized I will never shoot this rifle because I don't want to nick it up. So I will pass it on to someone who can afford to have a looker like this.
The Scope is a Redfield 3x9 power scope, It's an old set focus scope, I'd like to keep this scope for myself because I know most people take off the scopes on the used hunting rifles they buy anyway. If you want the scope too send me $100 extra, above the final listing price, the rings and base' will come with the gun, whether you pay for the scope or not. The rings receive a 1" tube. Happy Bidding!
