I was hoping some Model 70 experts would weigh in on this gun. Specifically if someone could comment on the under barrel markings.

Maybe I should post in the Winchester Rifle section.

Good Morning Pat,

I wish I could be of some Assistance to you in Your Quest about Your Model 70. But I only have one Pre 64, Model 70, in my Collection and I Never Really did Pursue the Technical Differences of that Model Winchester. In Other Words, Model 70 Winchesters are Not My Forte’. I like the Lever Type Winchesters. I will say, that Your Pictures Could be somewhat Sharper, Clearer, Better Definition of the Markings. 

Yes, You Might Want to Post Your Question in the Rifle Section, But there are only a few Members Here, That are into the Model 70 Winchester and when they log-on and see a Question about a Model 70, they will Probably answer Your Question.

All I Know is, The Scarcer The Caliber for any Model Winchester. You Really Have to Do Your Homework……hokie

Pat,

Certainly not a M70 expert, but my take on your gun….

Under barrel marking 35 indicates that barrel was originally manufactured in 1935 and intended for use on a M54. Was installed on a M70 in 1941 as evidenced by the appropriate #2 format M70 barrel stamp. Have seen a couple other guns over the years with similar barrel markings.

Thank you for the input. So you believe the barrel is correct for this gun? Any other means to determine originality?

Pat
