…for help to verify authenticity on this 300 savage. It’s supposedly new in the box. I know just enough to get me into real trouble on rare model 70 rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

…stephenking-

Interesting rifle...  Your friend's (S/N 348132) does indeed appear to be a twin to the one shown in photo 8-28 in Rule's M70 book.  As it happens the one in the book (S/N 320167; ex-Sam Sanders collection) is currently owned by a fellow WACA member, and he tells me his…

…s rifle, while not "unique", is one of a very small number in that configuration and chambering.

According the the information in Rule's book, M70s could be built on-order with a straight grip stock from sometime in the early '50s until 1955 (the year these two were made).  So there are…

…other "straight grip" M70s out there, but not many.

All that said, if authentic, your friend's rifle would likely be of considerable interest to many relatively advanced M70 collectors.  I am not questioning the authenticity of your gun at all, just pointing out that I have seen "fake" straight grip 70 FWTs sell at…

…a mint .358 WIN FWT and come up with a number in the vicinity of $6750.  Maybe more, maybe less...  For comparison, other desirable collector M70s, like high condition pre-war Super Grades in uncommon (but not rare) chamberings, like .220 SWIFT, .257 ROBERTS, .375 MAGNUM, etc. can fetch …

…quite like playing the slot machines, but to "win big" you need at least two bidders who want it bad going after it. Since some fake straight grip M70s have been sold in the past couple of years, a lot of potential bidders are going to be shy, even when the gun is legit (as your friend's appears to

The standand model 70 in the 358 caliber was only made in the year 1955. About 2000 were believed to have been made. Some of these were sent back to Winchester and…

…(how many of the 2000 is not known) Winchester did not have a recall but would rebarrel to a different caliber free of charges.

I had a Model 70 in the 358 caliber a few years back - shot it occasionally and had no problem. If I had known at that time what the value was going to, I would…

…of the "fake" sporters you see are custom built sporters from modified target rifles. These are rifles with custom stocks, similar in appearance to the factory sporting stock. They will usually have the original 28" target

…in the case of an A or pre A, they will always have "flat top" receivers which have the large dovetail cut on rear bridge for the Winchester 82A target sight. The original sporting rifles were round tops with holes in LH side of receiver for a Lyman 48F micrometer receiver sight. There were a very…

There will usually be 2 holes in barrel for a block and 2 on receiver for rear block. Ground bolt handles are often seen. These

…for the additional info. I believe from the SN, to know what you have with some interpolation. A Winchester Model 670

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winchester_Model_670). Made with blind magazine. The SN of the 670 allegedly began at 100,000 in latter 1966…

…. The "U" prefix I believe is simply altered. If not, no answer.

Someone has screwed a Model 70 barrel on in swap and that "70" nomenclature, a false lead. The clip guide slots still not making sense. Perhaps a modification or...? I think you should try a 30-06

…SN, or at least a partial with "X" placeholders for last couple of digits? / Are whole number & U prefix centered on receiver ring?

"U 1705xx"  The serial number is sharp, clear and centered on the receiver ring.

3. Have you contacted Winchester to inquire? Yes, they had no idea,…

…). Barrel nomenclature now all on the right side, upside down

5. Can you quote the entire nomenclature on the barrel?

WINCHESTER (R) MODEL 70-30-06 SPRINGRG

MADE IN NEW HAVEN, CONN. U.S.A. WINCHESTER PROOF STEEL

 

6. Possible to remove the barreled action from the stock to…

…consumed the forward hole.

8. Any seller/posessor info/assertions concerning the rifle? Said that it was used for NRA across the course in the 70's

 

Thanks again for thoughts on this action. A mystery to me.

…for the clarification and the pic. Yes, there are many variations of this rifle.I have never seen a variant of the M60-A Target Rifle though. As stated before, these are great little rifles and extremely accurate.   Big Larry

…over the last 10 to 20 years? I started my small collection of nice quality shooters a few years back but am thinking about taking some of my money targeted for retirement and buying "investment grade" Winchester rifles. My area of interest is lever action guns from the late 1800s to the early 1900s
