Here is a very scarce Model 70 in mint, unfired condition with the original box that should be included in any serious Winchester collection. Manufactured for one year only in 1986, this is a Winchester Model 70 XTR European Featherweight in 6.5x55 Swedish. This European Featherweight Model 70 XTR featured a 22" inch barrel with a twist rate of 1 in 8" inches with iron sights chambered in the extremely accurate and fast 6.5x55 Swede cartridge, a lightweight deluxe checkered American Walnut stock, and an internal 5-shot magazine with hinged floorplate. The front iron sight is a ramp type with a factory sight hood, while the rear sight is a flip-up type with an adjustable elevation notch that could be drifted for windage. This limited production Winchester is in like-new condition and has spent it's entire life in storage. It has never been carried or fired since leaving the factory and the original gloss blue finish rates 99% plus with no scratches, handling marks, or wear visible. The bore is pristine and bright, with sharp lands and grooves in the rifling and zero imperfections. The deluxe American Walnut stock is in excellent condition and has sharp and clean checkering and no handling marks. The only deduction that could be assessed to the stock is a very small ding behind the front factory sling swivel stud, which was probably done at the factory when installing the stud. There is a close up picture of this spot for you to see for yourself. The stock features a red Winchester factory installed recoil pad that makes the length of pull a hair over 13.5" inches to the end of the pad. The stock also has a factory black metal pistol grip cap and a beautiful schnabel forend. This Model 70 XTR European Featherweight comes with the original triggerguard hangtag still attached, and the original factory box complete with an intact serial numbered end label that matches the rifle. The box still has all of the cardboard inserts and the original owner's manual inside. These rifles are quite scarce in any condition, much less in mint condition complete with the original box. This rifle could be added to your collection as an investment with the confidence that you have one of the nicest examples in existence anywhere, and it cannot be upgraded.
