Description: FOR SALE: a Winchester Model 70 XTR Featherweight rifle chambered for the classic 257 Roberts cartridge that was built in 1981 during the first year of the USRAC production. It’s in superb condition and features a 22” barrel, a receiver factory drilled and tapped for scope and receiver sights, a 3 position wing safety, a jeweled bolt with a face showing hardly any use, the knurled bolt knob, and hinged floor plate. The genuine American walnut stock has the classy fleur-de-lis checkering, a fluted comb, a grip cap, sling swivel studs and the red rubber butt plate with the round Winchester logo that’s highly sought after by collectors. The super high gloss blued metal surfaces are largely free of defects and retain coverage in the 97-98% range, The bore is very good with strong, sharp rifling and the stock has only a few tiny handling marks. The actual weight of this rifle is 6.7 lbs. Sorry, but I don't have the box or manual.

The elderly gentleman I bought it from fired it very little, only enough to kill an antelope, a deer, and a cow elk. Since I’ve owned it, this lovely rifle has been a safe queen residing in a dry climate with only a couple of trips to the gun range. This 36 year old rifle is in fantastic condition as seen in the pictures. If you want to see different pictures/ angles please let me know and I’ll try to send them at my earliest convenience. The bolt action Model 70 has earned a place in American sporting culture and has been held in high regard by shooters since its introduction in 1936, earning the moniker "The Rifleman's Rifle". It’s time to invest your money in something that will appreciate in value and which you can hold in your hand. This is a classic American rifle made in the historic Winchester plant in New Haven, CN. For only $850, you can add this rifle to your collection or take it out and shoot it! Shipping and full coverage insurance will be extra but only at the actual charges. Please call four zero six, four nine five, zero zero five nine with your questions, thanks.
