Looking for original finish & unmodified:

.220 Swift varmint w/ metal butt plate or Feaatherweight w/ plastic butt plate (1961)

.243 target (Marksman?) stock w/ checkered flat butt plate or a Featherweight w/ plastic butt plate (1960)

.300 H&H stock w/ metal butt plate (1955)

.375 H&H stock w/ solid red pad (1954)

I understand the challenge I’m facing… but have to try.  please PM w/ pics & price.  thanks.

Here’s a pic of what I’m working on…. previous owner was stationed in Germany back in the 1950’s to early 60’s, he loved the “Schutzen” rifle look and according to the family, had Fuch’s in Austria fit all his Model 70’s with cheek pieces & buttpads. They are very well done, but to the American Winchester Model 70 collector, not appealing.

Update:  Nov. 2023   I’ve found all but one…. still need the 1954 .375 H&H stock w/ solid red pad……  I will happily pay for the proper stock.  thanks.

Ben,

I wish you the best of luck in finding all those Pre-64 Model 70 stocks.  They are out there, but it might be quite a wait.  

Just so you know, the .243 rifle with the target barrel might also be a Varmint model, and that stock might be easier to find than the marksman stock.  The metal work on the Varmint and the Target were identical.  I have been looking for an unmodified Marksman stock for YEARS!

Best chance of finding any scarce item is by creating a “saved search” for it on ebay.

Believe it or not found two very nice, unaltered 375 H&H stocks at different local shows 7 or 8 years ago. Both are long gone.

Used to be a lot of nice stuff at the shows, not so much anymore.

Major reason for that is that most of the parts, sights, optics, etc. that folks (other than dealers) used to bring to shows are now sold on ebay–a potential customer base of tens of thousands vs a few hundred at a show.  On top of that, items commonly bring more on ebay than at a show.
