Serial number is G11852xx, so this Winchester .30-06 Model 70 walnut and bright blue rifle was manufactured in 1975. It has normal wear from normal hunting for our neck of the woods here in West Tennessee. Light to moderate pecking and occasional scratching affect 20 to 25 percent of the original glossy finish by our estimate. Most of the scratching is concentrated on the stock sides above the floorplate, as the photos show. The black tip to the walnut stock has extensive peeling, as almost all the 70 Deluxes from this period exhibit. Metal percentage of finish is commensurate with the stock, perhaps slightly better. There is one weak brownish spotty area about 2 inches back of the muzzle, and som gun rack ringing, weakness to the blue, about an inch forward of the forend tip. Other than occasional small light rusty spots on the surface, there is one about .25 inches across on the left side of the barrel forward of the forend. Note that the barrel is free-floating. We consider that a positive aspect, as well as the bore and chamber being clean with no conspicuous fouling anywhere. This Model 70 is mechanically sound, and the trigger pull is about 3 pounds, perhaps a bit less. Note the distinctive high Williams adjustable sights, original to the Winchester 70s from this period. Since we consider almost all bright-blue and walnut stocked Winchesters to be collectable, this one is eminently serviceable as well. Own it for only $ 339.95
