Default Pre-64 model 70

Well on a pretty good high right now, no not drug induced, this is my first Winchester pre-64 model 70 in 243. it's an early 1950's and near mint condition. The owner had the custom scabbard made for it also. I was right on the scope it's a weaver 2.5x8 however, I've never seen this type of cross hairs before. He called them the screen door model as there are a series of verticle and horizional lines that form a rectangle much like a screen door. The very center is then a square set of multiple cross hairs. Very different and cool. He threw in some ammo and a belt shell holder. Today is a good day for the HM collector! Karl, you ever seen one of those Weaver scopes as described, very strange. I never knew they even made such a thing. Oh, I put 8 bills out for it and think it was a good buy in today's market.
