serial #537859, 264 Win Mag, 22'' barrel with a bright, excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this limited production sporting rifle retain about 97-98% original blue with some light wear along the barrel and at the muzzle, most of the loss being visible along the edges of the floorplate. The bolt body is electric pencil numbered to the receiver. The checkered walnut stock rates near excellent and has some light dings and a few areas of light flaking to the varnish. The stock features a raised comb and has a factory vented red recoil pad. The original sights, including the front sight hood, remain intact. A leather sling is included. The serial number for this limited run Featherweight rifle dates the receiver to 1961, Rule lists in his book that this configuration was only offered for a very short time from the second half of 1962 through 1963. Obviously the receiver was held for a time at the factory before the final assembly was completed. As rare Pre-64 Winchester Model 70's go, this should perform well as an investment for any Winchester or Model 70 collector. (48865-44) {C&R} (1800/2200) Sold For 2645.00
