Default Anyone know anything about the winchester model 70 .30-06?

i have pre 64 winchester model 70 .30-06 in pretty much perfect condition, it was made in 1963 actually. it's only been shot once, 99.8% of the finish on the barrel(2 VERY small scrapes near the bolt. i was wondering what you think i could get selling a gun like this at an auction or what i should expect if i were to have it appraised. i can probably get pictures up if that would help. thanks

Just from doing alot of rifle research lately I have learned that rifle to be known as the "Riflemans" rifle. As some collectors say to be one of the most popular hunting rifles to date. Only made in limited production for a short period of time. Just from what I have read on the internet & magazines I would estimate an approx value of $1000 for a near perfect rifle, all the way down to $500 - $700 for a 65% to 80% condition piece. It's funny this is posted today as I just got done reading an artical in Petersons Hunting about the new Model 70 that will be out just in time for 2008 firearm season. I don't know if the re-introduction of a favorite rifle for many will diminish the value or help increase it. Sounds like a nice rifle!!

Congrats, you have a very highly desirable rifle. Probably one of the best ever made. I would hope that you never sell it and send it down the family line. I think $1000.00 would not be a high dollar value in todays market for your gun if in fact it is clean and in excellect condition. Wish I had one.

Default Win M-70 going price

I don't know how many gun shows there are in your area, but just like with used cars information is power. I would go to the gun show and see what they are ASKING for ones on their tables that are similar to yours.
The Win collectors that I have met all can spit out tons of information on various features and can probibly tell you a lot about your rifle. I would have the rifle in the car, and cruise the show prior to bringing it in. DON'T
sell it to the first dealer that offers money for it. If they want it immediately for x number of dollars they will still want it for the same money in an hour. I have seen rifles/pistols sold for less then they should have been. The tables closest to the door are the prime locations for getting walk-in guns as they come in. Good luck, consider strongly keeping it prior to selling it. I regret almost every rifle/pistol sale I have made.

Karl
