…Jeff-

The accuracy of M70 production numbers is always a question.  There are a few documents in the McCracken Library (CFM) that give "yearly net orders received" or …

…keep copies.  If Harry's papers ended up in Cody they haven't been cataloged on-line yet...

All that said, Roger's (Harry's) totals for the Target styles were: National Match (1971); Target Model (14,644); Bull Gun (2706).  For comparison, the number given for Super Grades is 15881 and…

…for Carbines (7197).  So it's fair to say that the Target styles are no more common that the highly desired Super Grades and Carbines, yet they don't seem to attract the interest of the collecting community…

….  Personally, I don't understand why...

While the "demand" may be less, collecting these rifles is hard... For one thing, target rifles tend to get shot a lot more than hunting rifles (though maybe not carried as much).  For another, target shooters are often "tinkerers"…

…to getting their rifles to be as accurate as possible, so non-factory modifications, e.g. bedding, free-floating, etc., are common.  The M54 Target model was only cataloged for the last couple years they were made, and finding any unaltered M54 is a challenge.  In the M70s some chamberings, e.g…

…. 30-06, 243 WIN and even 220 SWIFT, are relatively easy to locate and if you know what "original" is then you can do OK.  The second tier of Target rifle rarity is probably 257 ROBERTS and 270 WCF.  They turn up now and then.  The real rare ones are 22 HORNET, 250-3000 SAV, 7 M/M, 300 MAGNUM,…

… and 35 REM.  (I'm talking about the 300 MAGNUM Target rifle with 26" medium heavy barrel, not the Bull Gun).    

Speaking of rare, here are a couple photos:

These are what Rule called "1st…

…variation target rifles".  They were made using medium heavy straight taper barrel blanks intended for the M54 Target rifle that have integral front sight ramps.  S/N 3339 is a 257 ROBERTS and S/N 3789 is a 30 GOV'T'06.  Rule claimed "less than forty" of these…

…ramped target rifles were known.  While I'm sure the actual number made is considerably higher, they are still very hard to find.

Best,

Lou

…the 1892/92 rifles.   Can you post some images of the rifle and the serial number so I can add yours into the data also?  I would say that your $970 price tag is definitely a good price for the gun.  Has the barrel been shortened as in the rifle shown below?

…have on hand a barrel for the 1886 model.  See attached pictures.  It is dated 1951 and resembles a model 70 Winchester barrel regarding the front ramp, it takes a hood and has a low angled ramp.  I remember hearing that Winchester used to rebarrel and

…  The old "woulda, coulda, shoulda" story!  Had I known in the 1970s what I know (or think I know) now, I would have taken out a loan and purchased a number of Winchester rifles and carbines that I could not afford
