Winchester model 70 value

Recommended Posts

I am watching a bankruptcy auction, and there are two super grade model 70s a 300 win mag New with tags and a 7mm lightly used. I don't know much about the 70's other than some military snipers have used them. I'm in the market for an elk rifle.

What would be a safe amount to pay for a "super grade"? Anything I need to be looking for with these rifles?

Thanks in advance for any help!

When were they made?

 

Are they pre 1964?

If not, were they made in New Haven Conn. or South Carolina?

Do they have claw extractors?

You probably already realize the pre-64 has a different, more Mauser extractor which dangerous game hunters and such preferred. They also had a higher level of fit and finish that was absent for a time in the Winchester product line. If you want one go for it but a good commercial Bruno Mauser will do equally as nicely.

Thanks guys, exactly the distinctions I was looking for.  Unfortunately, the auction is only online (and the pics and info they provide is limited).  If I can't get one for under $500, I think I'll pass.  The wood on both of them do look real nice.  They have a Sako and a couple 1911's for sale, and a couple mausers.  They have a $5k gun safe (the high end liberty line)....so I would expect that the guns (based on the other guns in the auction) are quality.  I'll post some pics if I end up with some of them.

I saw those gun broker prices in the $1,300-1,600 range.  That's why I thought if I could get a deal it would be worth it.  They also have 20 or so SCAR 17 clips (haha jk mags) for sale as well as tons of ammo.

You won't find a standard grade in decent condition for $500. If I could get a nice supergrade for under a grand, I'd be all over it. This is assuming it has controlled round feed.

They just posted a pic with the original tag, "claw controlled round feeding". If the prices stay reasonable, I may be getting my first 1911, a Colt 1911 Special Combat Government...looks to be new in the box.

Yep I came across this auction looking for a gun safe.  Didn't end up with that safe but I got the STI VIP 9mm and the SCAR 17 mags.  Pretty good deal on them and the gun was practically new with a bunch of custom upgrades and machine work.  I'll be keeping an eye out for more auctions like that for sure.
