Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 CRF LEFT HAND .243 Winchester  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Modern Bolt/Auto/Single > Model 70 > Post-64
Description: Winchester Custom Shop left hand Model 70 .243 Winchester. Serial G151999 features a 26-inch stainless steel H-S Precision barrel with tapered target crown and .875 muzzle diameter. The stock is a right hand McMillan heavy varminter with an extra sling swivel up front for a bipod. The bolt body is jeweled. Weight is 11.2 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. The stock needs finish texture & paint (the consignor could never decide on color) to cover the filled right hand bolt slot, and a small impression (or flaw) on right side at inception of forend taper needs filling. It is interesting to note that this is a standard-length action with a spacer in the magazine box. CONDITION: Overall metal is 99.5%, with the slightest freckling on the front of the trigger guard (where it meets the floorplate). This caliber was never offered in production. BACKGROUND: This rifle originates from a spectacular left hand battery of eleven Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 rifles with consecutive serial numbers and controlled round feeding actions. Based on receivers taken from the original prototype run of 40 left hand actions (ten were built as test rifles and subsequently destroyed, 11 were used for this group and almost all the rest were returned to production), each of these rifles was hand-built by the USRAC Senior Design Engineer responsible for the Model 70 program in the 1990s. Himself a lefty, he created these rifles for his own use, yet never took them afield. As such, all remain in unfired condition with only light handling/storage wear. Of the eleven calibers, six were never offered in production. Almost all are in Sporter configuration, exceptions being the .243 Winchester and the .30-06 Springfield (Featherweight). This .30-06 Springfield is the first left hand Model 70 CRF rifle ever built, even among the prototypes. The purchaser will receive personalized documentation from the builder/consignor detailing the origin and history. The price is firm and layaway is available. Photo package by request (include direct email address).
