These are kind of out of my realm of knowledge. These old Winnies came in yesterday. Very nice guns, owner dropped them off, said to come up with an offer for him……. Here is what I have researched so far :

1. Model 43, .22 Hornet, s/n A
2. Model 70, 30-06 Featherweight, s/n 558923 ( 1952 )
3. Model 70, .220 Swift, Weaver Scope, s/n 396893 ( 1957 )
4. Model 70, .270, s/n 134095 ( 1950 )
5. Model 70, .375 H&H, s/n 351893 ( 1955 )

All in very nice condition, the .270 & .375 are the best condition wise.

Need some comments, opinions, fair prices. I will likely buy them, can’t keep them all though !!!

What is the serial number on the Model 43?

The Model 70 375 H&H Magnum looks like it has been refinished.

I disagree.

The Model 43 has an altered stock, the top Model 70 in the group picture has been definitely been refinished and the stock cut for the recoil pad. The barrel on the 375 very much appears to have been buffed and refinished.

Without the benefit of seeing several clear detailed pictures of each rifle, I am not comfortable estimating the value of anyone of them.

rikkn, try not to use a flash when you take those photos, especially of the barrel printing. If you could available light and avoid reflections, we might get a better idea of how sharp that printing is.

You would do a much greater service to yourself if you would take the rifles outdoors into some open ,bright shade light and redo the photos. the close up[ photos with the flash only result in very poor photos of high contrast and a loss of detail in the burned out glare from the flash. That is the bright white areas.

Assume the third rifle down with solid, red pad is the 375 H&H….cross bolts are not original to gun. Also, may be an optical illusion, but the barrel appears to be shorter than 25". The Fwt is a 1962 rifle.

Interesting Ted, why would someone add them ?? Seems like a lot of work if they were not needed. I will take better pictures Tuesday.

The Fwt 30-06 with SN 558XXX was not made in 1952–more like 1962 or 1963.

The 375 H&H has non-original crossbolts (some of the later 375s had crossbolts identical to 458s but the earlier ones did not).
