Transition Model pre-64Mod.70
Category : C
Caliber : .270 Winchester
A rare pre-64 Winchester 70 cal.270 transition model (type II, variation 1)* that leaved the New Haven factory in 1948.
That standard model is fitted with a alloy steel 24'' barrel, chambered for the classic .270 WCF cartridge. The front sight base, forged with the barrel, bears its original Winchester 103C bead under factory sliding protector while the rear sight is an old Marble 69 that folds to allow the sighting through the Lyman 48WJS receiver sight affixed to the left side of the receiver.
The American walnut stock, without cheekpiece or Monte-Carlo comb, displays a 13½'' LOP on the Winchester soft red rubber butt plate. It retains much of its original finish while the action and fitting, all steel machined, are blued.
A good "Latigo" type US sling is fitted to the swivels of the rifle.
Even if the now grey bolt knob has lost some bluing, this 8lb-6oz rifle remains in excellent original condition, with a perfect mirror bore, a crisp trigger and it works flawlessly, delivering the superb accuracy you can expect from "The Rifleman's Rifle"
Indeed its bears our complete guarantee.
