Beautiful pre-64 Winchester 70 (type III, variation 3)* manufactured in 1953 and chambered for the classic .270 Winchester.
This standard model is fitted with an alloy steel 24" barrel with integral front and rear sights bases forged with the blank. The front sight support bears an original Lyman mod.31 bead under factory sliding protector while the rear sight has given way to the front support of a M.L Stith streamlined scope mount dovetailed in its base.
This rare period mount sports, in ultra-low position, a Weaver G4 scope with crosshair reticle. All the parts, the weapon like the accessories and fittings, are blued steel.
The low Monte-Carlo comb stock is made of American walnut, and while showing a few usage scratches, it retains most of the factory finish and displays a 13½" LOP measured on the factory checkered steel butt plate.
That rifle didn't suffered from any modification except for an invisible bedding at the receiver recoil lug while the original trigger has been perfectly tuned for a clean 3 lbs. single stage let-off.
A period "Latigo" US sling fits on the original swivels.
This 8lb-6oz rifle is in superb state of conservation, its operation is tight and works flawlessly while its mirror bore barrel is absolutely perfect.
With the scope fitted it weights 9lb-3oz.
This pre-64 Winchester 70, a beautiful sample of "The Rifleman's Rifle" bears our full warranty.
