If you go to any gun show in your area and see how much the pre-64 model 70's are worth you will be smiling all the way back to your truck....


Do not sell that rifle.

Now ya got me droolin!!! They didnt call that rifle "The Rifleman's Rifle" for no reason. I am glad they started making the pre-64 actions again.

You got a real dandy there. My own pre-64 model 70 .30-06 is probably my favorite rifle.

Appreciate all the helpful and nice comments, guys. Gee, you almost make me feel like I've done something. All I did was sit here and inherit the thing.

However, I promise we will be worthy of the honor of being pre-'64 Winchester owners through our gun care, marksmanship,game killing, and safety.

Is there anything in particular I should know about operating this bolt action? We have been shooting post-'01 Ruger 77 and Remington 700 .270's as well as a 2004 Win 300 WSM.

Also, it has a heavy trigger. We're used to about 2.5 lbs. I assume Winchester's is adjustable?

Thanks again

Yes, the trigger is adjustable, but only to a certain point with all the stock parts left intact. Backing off the spring tension nut as far as it would go, I could still only get mine down to 4 lbs. When our local hunting season is over after this coming weekend I'm going to take mine to a local gunsmith and let him work on it for me. I'd like it to be set at 3 lbs. max. with no creep and minimum overtravel.
