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.

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.

Depending on the age, it should not be difficult. If the rifle is a newer version, after the early '90s or so, it might not be so easy. The older, the easier with M70s. :thumbup:

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.

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)

"Personally I would keep it for my grandson.. "

"Good luck, consider strongly keeping it prior to selling it. I regret almost every rifle/pistol sale I have made."

"Thats a nice gun. If you're not in dire need of cash I am just like the other guys on this one. Keep IT.."

Couldn't have said things like this better myself. Almost like they took the words right out of my mouth . . . . hey guys, did they taste good??? <grin> (Oops, did I actually say that?)
