I have I/H 4198, 5744, Unique.

I see your pet load for 5744... did you use any filler with that?

I've used 5744 before (trapdoor 45/70) but have run into unburned kernels.  In your pet load do you find unburned powder in the barrel or action?  Trying to avoid that.

…Everyone....
 
I am contemplating a 22 Hornet build on the M70. I do have a few H specific parts on hand.  Some of the missing parts can be bought, the rest would have to be modified from standard parts or made

It sometimes occurs in the rear corner of the locking lug abutment.  Not caused by shooting, but by application of the safety (which no target rifle needs anyway), which puts excessive pressure on that thin steel lip; in later models, this part of the rcvr. was made thicker, though it took

…time to divest myself of a few. I say that, and I bought a S&W M39-2 today. They take up less room.

1934  Speedlock with early Lyman Super Targetspot.

If you bought that rifle, think seriously about a nice Winchester A5 to go on it. The scope will cost you more than the rifle.   Big Larry

…in post heights of the W1 and the Marbles W2 is going to be much for 100 yard shooting.

I suppose the worst thing that can happen is miss the target.

… have owned and examined lots and lots of 52's over the years. Never have I seen a gumwood stock on a 52. This was Winchester's "flagship" rimfire target rifle and I cannot ever imagine them substituting a gumwood stock on these rifles. I have never seen a gumwood stock on any Winchester 22 except for

…to find in decent condition and are a cool piece of of NW history.  I do have one Spruce gun that I inherited from my dad.  It's about a 60-70% gun.  I have also managed to put together a collection of LLLL (Loyal Legion Of Loggers and Lumbermen) memorabilia to go with it. I'll post some

Here are the results using the resized WW .45-70 brass.  I have not tried the Jamison brass yet.  This was 23 rounds fired from 50 yards using a rest.  

The rifle is an 1892 production gun so

…is for Louis luttrel.  Oops. I must have had a brain fart. I posted my Mod. 70 in 7 Mauser serial no. Wrong that gun is .257 Roberts. I don't have one in 7 Mauser but I would like to. Have one in 250 Sav.

…mine.  I recently took on the old .40-60 WCF using black powder for use in an original Winchester Model 1876 rifle.

I had some resized WW 45-70 brass in my stash that I got from Buffalo Arms years ago.  I recently found some Jamison .40-60 brass so did a comparison with the resized WW 45-70 brass. The Jamison brass has a slightly larger rim but not quite as big as an original Winchester make .40-60 cartridge in my collection. Not

…Hardhat-

I have no record of S/N 7491, but S/N 7482 was a 7 M/M, as was 7009 and 7977.  Yours was probably made as part of the same production order as S/N 7482. 

Is yours a standard rifle or some other configuration? …

… I'd like to add the record to my ongoing M70 survey.

Regarding Steve's insightful comments, I agree... I am happy to provide an opinion on a gun prior to its purchase, but I shy away from…

…and off-line, e.g. by PM.  I never know how somebody will take the news if my opinion happens to differ from their own...  Of course, pre-64 M70s are the only Winchester firearms I consider myself qualified to even have an opinion about, let alone dump it on someone else...

Best,

Lou

…is response to Louis Luttrell and his Mod. 70  in 7 Mauser story.  Mine is S/N: 7491. No internet on this one. Met the man at a gun show. I had a Savage 99 he wanted and Mod. 97 riot gun at…

…his home. He invited me up the but it took a year with this covid stuff. We did our deal and he showed me a couple Mod. 70 s. Maybe 6 months later those came home with me.

I haven't looked in to these yet. I guess I will find out more when I post.

…and musket models. The 73 was made in 44, 38 , 32, 22short, 22 long and 22 extra long calibers. Not counting the 22's the 44 caliber accounts for 70%, the 38 is 17% and the 32 is 13% of the guns in my survey. The odd thing is with the 32 having the lower production numbers it is not worth more

…need a Winchester Model 70 pre 64 1948 vintage bolt or bolt body for .270/.30-06

Have been watching ebay with no luck.

Thanks

P.S. I had a "friend" convince me that a post war Model 70  "Super Grade" carbine in 270 Win. that has "special fancy" wood was worth $10,000.00.  That still hurts!

…himself was in a different category. 

I have several single shots rebarreled by Ken Briesein, one of the most famous barrel makers of the '70 & '80s, but he did NOT mark his barrels & unfortunately for me, I have no proof he did the work.
