8. Winchester Pre '64 Model 70 Super Grade Bolt Action Rifle

serial #236349, 270 Win, 24" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 92% original blue, the loss is due primarily to even fading and high edge wear, most prevalent on the receiver and bow of the triggerguard. The bolt body remains mostly bright with light operational marks, it is properly numbered to the gun and the bolt knob has toned to a dull pewter. The checkered capped pistolgrip walnut buttstock rates very good to very good plus with only minor dings and handling marks from use afield, most prominently again below the bolt knob where Mr. Waters must have worn a ring on his index finger or perhaps has been scratched by fingernails. The rifle retains its original open sights including the front hood (the front sight is a Lyman gold bead rather than the more oft-seen Winchester silver bead) and the receiver rings show some very light scope base markings. Overall a very honest, very classic, still very usable Model 70 Super Grade, shipped in 1952, no doubt the primary hunting gun of Mr. Waters. (38218-28) {C&R} [Ken Waters Collection] (2000/2500) SOLD FOR $2,300.00
