- Up for sale is a Fantastic Winchester Model 70 Supergrade in 30-06 caliber with a current production Meopta Meostar R1 3-10X50 scope with Warne steel scope mounting hardware. This is the pre '64 style Model 70 action with the large extractor claw and integral recoil lug. The wood on this rifle is fabulous even for a Supergrade. Asking $1415 shipped for both and I'm open to reasonable offers.
Price of rifle - $815
scope - $600


- Second is a Smith and Wesson 500. SN# cpl0318. This Smith is in overall good condition. The barrel looks good with nice prominent rifling. Action and all mechanical parts operate as they should. Timing and lockup are good. Asking $800 shipped.

Text or call me at 727-308-3250 if you are Interested or if you have any questions and I will only ship to a valid FFL dealer.

True, however any original pre-64 and being a super grade have a significant value add.

According to the original post, this isn't a pre'64 but a recent mauser style/claw extractor/control round feed model 70. It was posted as a pre-64 style, not a pre-64. The proper nomenclature is a model 70 "CLASSIC". The term "CLASSIC" is how Winchester differentiates the modern pre-64/CRF style with an actual pre-64. The modern "CLASSIC" returned around 1992 but for the first couple years was only available through the custom shop and then returned to the standard line of model 70's soon after.

The New Haven plant closed in 2006 and the last couple years the quality control was hit or miss. In 2007 FN started production again in South Carolina with a different trigger called the "M.O.A." trigger. As of 2013 production of model 70's is in Portugal. The current production South Carolina/Portugal guns are arguably the best model 70's ever built, though there are some who complain about the new trigger because it is more complex than the original model 70 trigger.

The year of manufacture for Model 70's can easily be determined by the serial number.

And still one of the best all around hunting cartridges ever. There's a reason everyone has one.

That’s is why I stated an “original” pre-64. Agree on all else!

Your original post said "pre-64 style". Many people use that term for the later crf models and it can be confusing. I didn't notice that it was you in the second post clarifying pre-64.

Apologies for the confusion. Good luck with the sale. Utah gun exchange is much more effective for selling guns than this site, if you haven't posted there already.

Thank You. I know 30-06 are pretty difficult to sell faster.
