Experimental pre '64 Winchester Model 70 Carbine

Lot 24: Experimental pre '64 Winchester Model 70 Carbine

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #434954, 256 Win, 20" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This rifle is marked on the barrel simply "WINCHESTER / TRADEMARK" on left side just behind sight and on top in hand stamped individual dies "256 WIN / 012 TAPER". The top of the guide lug on the bolt is electric penciled with the serial number of the rifle as seen on other experimental model 70 rifles. The action of this rifle dates to 1958 during the development of the 256 Winchester Magnum which was eventually introduced in 1960. The chamber of this rifle is considerably larger than what went on to become the 256 Win. Mag. The underside of the barrel shows no marks and both the barrel and action show a Winchester proof. The condition of the rifle is excellent with its metal surfaces retaining 98 - 99% original blue finish. The checkered walnut stock is of walnut and has the Monte Carlo style comb with no cheekpiece. The stock rates excellent plus with nearly all of its original finish and with sharp checkering and a checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate. Further study into the development of the 256 Win. Mag. could prove interesting, the 256 was essentially a pistol cartridge, it was a 357 Magnum necked down to 256. As stated before, the chamber of this rifle is definitely a rifle cartridge with a .256" diameter bore. An extremely rare, probably one-of-a-kind experimental Winchester Model 70 rifle.

The metal surfaces retain about 95% original blue, the chief loss being high edge wear and backstrap toning to pewter with scattered light handling marks from the years. There is still very good nitre blue on the trigger and the spur hammer retains vibrant color case-hardening. The checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips rate excellent. Included is one nickel plated magazine marked "Pat'd September 9, 1884" on the base. Really a very attractive example of the Sporting Model 1902 Colt pistol. (35825-23) {C&R}

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #22942, 38 ACP, 4 3/8" barrel with a very good bore which shows strong evident rifling but with very minor frosting within the grooves. The slide retains about 92-95% original blue, the loss due primarily to high edge and contact point wear, also with minor handling marks. The frame retains more original blue, about 95-97%, the loss due primarily to some light freckling on the frontstrap and toning on the backstrap to a freckled brown. The trigger still retains nice pale nitre blue and the round spur hammer shows excellent vivid color case-hardening. The checkered Rampant Colt grips rate about excellent. Included is one all-blue original magazine, its base is unmarked. A clean, used, but well-cared-for example overall. (35825-22) {C&R}

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #218972, 10 ga on a #3 frame, 32" steel barrels choked full and full with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain 98% of a quality reblue showing some oxidation spotting around the muzzles. The frame is engraved with the standard ÒP" style pattern of simple scroll and borders and exhibits 98% of reapplied case colors and the triggers and triggerguard have all of their restored blue. The pistolgrip stock and splinter forearm rate very good having a few scratches over a crazed and checked contemporary finish and exhibiting crisp recut checkering. The stock shields are checkered as well. There is a Parker hard rubber gripcap that shows some wear and a dogÕs head buttplate with some edge wear providing a length of 14 1/4" with drops of 1 3/4" at the comb and 3" at the heel. The forearm has a lever release and the metal shows 98% redone case colors. Double triggers, extractors, and an automatic safety are featured and verified by factory records for this 1926 gun. This appears to have been a restoration by Parker gunsmith, Larry Delgrego and, other than the wood crazing, is in excellent restored condition. (116020-484) {C&R}
