I have a Pre-64 Winchester Model 70 I'd like to sell.

The good:

It's a complete rifle but not factory original. The action is in pretty good shape. The floorplate says Super Grade, but I haven't verified if it started as a Super Grade or not. Comes with a Redfield Junior 1-piece and Leupold 30mm rings. I think the bolt handle was reblued at some point as there is little specks of pitting under the finish. The stock is a glass bedded McMillan Winchester Marksman in OD green, with a plain rubber buttpad and Freeland rail in the forend. The barrel is a 26" stainless Douglas barrel chambered in .308 Winchester, with an unknown twist and approximating the original Winchester Target contour.

The bad:

The outside of barrel is showing a moderate amount of surface rust and, unfortunately, so is the last 2" of the inside. I haven't shot the rifle to see how much this affects the accuracy. The receiver also has about 5 holes on the left side for target sight bases, which I don't have.

I had planned that I would cut that 2" off, have the barreled action cerakoted black, the stock coated brown, and have a sniper look alike with a nicer stock, but I've lost interest in the project.

Priced kind of firm at $800 + shipping. Willing to hear trades for AR uppers or optics, full or partial either way. Not really interested in firearms trades, given that most of the firearms I'm looking for far exceed the value of this one.

Any idea what the mcmillan weighs? I may be interested in the stock if you want to part it out. Could you post a pic from the side view of the rifle?

No idea on the weight of the stock. I can take more photos this weekend, although I don't quite get what you're asking for.

this is a nice gun, just needs a bit of clean up. I like this vintage especially when it is in the wood stock.
