    my uncle has a winchester model 70 30-06 with a serial number of 6069. can any help me with date of manufacture and possible value. he has taken extremely great care of the rifle and is in easily 95% or better condition. or can someone at least point me in the right direction to research this. thank you

    countryfun:The gun was made in 1937 which is the second year of production. Placing a value without at least a picture is difficult. However, assuming your 95% condition is accurate and there are not extra holes or any other modifications I would say about $1,500.00 to sell it. If I owned it I would not take $2,000.00 only because I really like old Model 70's. I hope that helps,
