Winchester Model 70 PRE-64 .257 Roberts Improved - VERY NICE RIFLE!

This is a pre-1964 Winchester Model 70 chambered in .257 ROBERTS IMPROVED with a 24" standard weight barrel.

NO SPECIAL AMMO IS REQUIRED FOR THIS RIFLE!! REGULAR .257 ROBERTS AMMO IS FINE IF YOU DON'T RELOAD!

The rifle was originally chambered in .257 Roberts by Winchester, but was rechambered to ".257 IMP" by Alex Hoyer,
a renowned gunsmith of 1000 yd benchrest shooting fame in the Pennsylvania area in the fifties and sixties.

This unusual rifle is in very good condition with a little honest wear.

Based on the serial number, we believe this is a late 1949 vintage rifle, perhaps early 1950.

The stock is in very good shape, with a few bumps and marks on it. It has real cut checkering that has a little wear.

There is a Pachmayr "White Line" recoil pad of the era on the stock. The stock has sling loops installed.

The receiver is drilled and tapped for a scope base, and has a Weaver single piece base installed.

The rifle is drilled and tapped for a side mounted receiver sight as well, with plug screws in the holes.

The gun has a wide trigger "shoe" installed on it, making the trigger "feel" much lighter than it actually is.

The bluing on the gun is just beginning to take on a slight greyish hue as many 65 year old guns might,
but overall is in very good shape with minimal rubbing, marring, or wear.

Please keep in mind that the "improved" chambering can fire regular .257 Roberts ammunition without issue. That's
actually how you fire-form the brass to the "improved" chamber, and get it ready to reload in "improved" fashion if you like!
