    I recently acquired a winchester model 70-270 rifle with serial number of 197343. It is in very good condition and I would like to know the year of manufacture, worth as well as any other interesting information you can give. Thanks!

    Thanks for your info. I have a friend who found an identification book which had a photo so I was able to make a positive ID but was unable to get an exact year of manufacture from the book. I'm not really a big gun buff so all I can really say is that there is some pattern on the gun stock which I think is called "checkering" and there is a strap on it. I don't see any other special words on the gun so I'm assuming this is a standard.
