Hi Guys,

Well, i will purchasing a pre64 270 this afternoon.    The one sticking point is the serial number has been removed and in its place is <>FSO <>10<>  Even with the serial number removed the condition and price makes it worth buying.   

Do any of you veterans have some insight into this??

Thanks!

Manuel

I wouldn’t touch it.  Being produced after 1934, when the National Firearms Act required a firearm to have a serial number, the obliteration of the serial number makes this rifle illegal to possess.

Believe you’re thinking about LBJ’s gift to us all, the Gun Control Act of 1968.  Most of Winchester’s lower priced .22s, like 69s & 67s weren’t serialized. 

However, I’d use the lack of a no. on this 70 as a bargaining tool–tell the seller you’ll “take the risk,” for a price you can’t refuse.
