Like most of the other folks who have replied, this is probably one of the best made hunting rifles of the 20th century. It has been used by hunters as well as military snipers, all with results expected from the name Winchester.
Sell a rifle like that? I'm one who would hang on a rifle like that and pass it on to a descendant some day. Rifles like that should be handed down to future generations instead of being auctioned/sold, but that's just my opinion.
the model 70 is a very nice rifle.All winchesters or bringing a good dollar right now.The pre-64s or in high demand and one in 95+ condition is bringing very good money.many or bringing 3-5Xs what they were worth 10yrs ago.Like others said if you aint in a bad way for some cash,KEEP IT
Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave
i aswell have a pre 64 model 70 30-06 that was given to me last week, thought i had a regular deer rifle till all these posts. thank you
You have got yourself a very fine rifle there, no doubt of that. If you'd like to know the year built, just give us the first 3 digits or so of the serial number followed by Xs (so you do not give out the actual number)
