This is an early 1967 gun. By now Winchester had already been blasted for 3 years about their "new and improved" model 70. Things weren't going well for Winchester and they were scrambling to come up with a model 70 that people wouldn't hate. They still weren't quite there, but were improving slowly. By early 67 this would be about their 3rd attempt to make a better gun. This is a very nice example. All blue remaining. All wood finish remaining. Little or no wear anywhere. This gun is pretty much "as new". Mounted on this gun is an early Bushnell 4X scope on the traditional Weaver mounts. There isn't much sense having a nice collection of pre-64s if you don't have a couple of post-64s for comparison to show Winchester's screw up in 1964. Cal 30-06.
