    I have a Win Model 70, Pre 64 (think 1947 according to serial number research) Ser#185222, .270. 24" barrel, V rear sight with 98% bluing, not even any wearing of the bolt handle bluing.

    Stock is 90% with a few small case ejection marks. Gun is in beautiful shape.

    The gun has been in my family since it was bought with maybe 100 rounds being shot through it.

    I am wondering what it may be worth. I am thinking of selling it to a police sniper buddy of mine who would give the gun the care it deserves, need a ballpark value. Photos attached.

    The photos of the rifle are to big and I would be happy to e-mail them to whoever would like.

    Sorry...

    The Blue Book just about doubles that value.

    "Model 70 Standard Grade (1946-1963 Production)

    .270 Win.

    98% - $825"

    "A general rule for Super Grades is that if you add 100% to the standard grade in similar cals., values should be rather close"

    Soooo......the Blue Book value of your gun, in 98% condition is $1,650.

    I apologize, I did not see that this was a Super Grade.

    This is one area where Fjestad is a touch light. True, minty SG's will bring every last $$ of $1800 in .270. Maybe just a touch less in .30-06.

    They drop off pretty quick as condition worsens, but a stone-mint SG in ANY caliber is a showpiece.
