Re: Winchester Model 70 30-06 Value
Hi the7defields.....welcome to TFF.
All pre-64 Winchester Model 70's have a serial number below 700,000. Your particular Model 70 was made in 1952.
Assuming that yours is a Standard Grade Model 70, it's Blue Book value is:
70% - $415
60% - $375
Pre-64 Model 70's are, indeed, worth more than the later models.....but, in a common caliber (.30-06, the most common they made), and in the condition you describe, you'll be lucky to get more than about $250-275 for it. The scope may add a bit to the value.....but not much.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
