    My wife and I went

    bird hunting this past Saturday afternoon. we had to drive into a spot on an old logging road, perhaps 2.5 miles, with several hills. The 4wd got us in and out with no issues but a 2wd would not have...

    The SG&Y

    is speedy Gonzales and the pattern on the barrel is made by polishing the barrel, then putting on plastic mesh and bead blasting it. The mesh keeps the area under it bright producing the contrast....

    Doug

    the XTR features didn't come out in the model 70 until 1978. If you still have it you can date it online, just google Winchester dates of manufacture. The post 64s started with serial number 700,000...

    Post '64 Win Model 70

    On a trip back North from southern Maine a friend and I stopped at LL Bean. Now most of you know them as the trendy deck shoe and preppy clothing store, but the flagship store in Freeport has a...
  7. A lot of things

    can work to dictate twist rate...temperature, elevation....but I still wouldn't sell a model 70 with a 12 twist barrel unless I need or wanted to shoot long for caliber bullets in conditions that...

    perceptions regarding twist rate vary I guess :)

    The turning mandrels

    are. I was too quick to ask the question as I was thinking about the cutters available for the pumpkin at PMA. I don't see they offer the turning mandrels. Is Nielson still making the turning...

  11. Barrel twist

    from the Shilen website: I wouldn't sell a good Winchester 30 cal just because it had a 1=12 barrel, but that's just me.

  13. Regarding Post 64 model 70

    I guess I can't disagree that the first few years rifles were kind of ugly stock and checkering wise. By the early 70s though, after much input to Winchester, the push feed 70s, imo, were quite nice....

    There is a lot of appeal

    for the light and handy Winchester 94s and Marlin lever guns. Light and handy and effective. I have a early 50s vintage 94 in .32 Special but don't hunt with it any more. My eyesight is ok but with...

    I'm always interested

    in how little interest there is in the 8x57 JS cartridge. It is extremely capable and can shoot heavy bullets that boast a wider frontal area. I guess its just the metric aversion in this country and...

    Are any of the rifles

    sporterized Gew 88's? If so may were converted to .323. If they are there is an S stamped on the receiver in front of the crown on top. Good luck. You can always shoot cast bullets.
