This scope had already gone out of production (rights sold to Lyman) BEFORE the M.67 was introduced!  This seller is one of the most, if not THE most, flagrant & shameless BS artists on GB.  Naturally, due to the ignorance of the know-nothings bidding on GB (& ebay) his carnival-barker line of BS has made the SOB a "Top Seller."

The bases and rings are also incorrect.  Nice condition though.  RDB

You guys are correct about the scope and bases but that is not even a 677, the 677 did not have iron sights, it was the 'scope-only version of the 67.

Here is one of my 677's for comparison -

Something I don't know, never having seen one, but is the 677 marked on the brl as such, or only 67?

Roger,  Though bases are "who knows what," what do you see incorrect about the rings?

Hi Clarence,

The barrels were still marked identically with the Model 67.  The same thing occurred with the Model 697, the barrels were marked the same as the Model 69.

I guess Winchester did not want to make a specific roll die for such a limited production rifle.

Thanks for the reply's. I knew the bases weren't right for a duel sight rifle and that the crown was wrong. I wonder how many of the new in box are made up after looking at this one.

Thanks

And the fool that buys it will never question it's "super-rarity," even though all the info needed to expose this fraud is readily available.  But you can't doubt the word of a GB "Top 100 Seller," can you?

Clarence, I believe these mounts are the correct ones.  Roger

Misunderstood you, Roger.  Thought you meant incorrect for the A5 scope on this phony 677.  Ironically, the A5 is worth far more than the "correct" scope & mounts, but this will be lost on whoever buys it

Don't  mean to change the subject, but wondering what the thoughts are regarding this 1894 from the same seller.

At first glance I think it is a nice gun.  It is not worth more that it's latest bid to me, maybe not quite this much even?  I thought the gun looked too black and I know they got blacker in this range but there is enough patina and the roll die markings look good.  I wish I could see it in person and that is was an antique.
