I just bought this gun from a co-worker:
Winchester Model 70
Caliber-.270 Win
Scope Leupold 3x9x50mm
22" barrel
SN# G202xxxx
The stock,scope and barrel are all camo.
I've did some searching but came up empty handed, can anybody give me some info.

Made by USRA sometime after Winchester folded it's tent in 1981.

No telling what it was under the paint job.

I can't tell from your photos if it is a push feed or a claw.

Either way, it is a 270, has a good scope, so take it out and shoot it.

It should do fine.

Just don't drop it in the woods, it will be hard to find. ;)

Thanks guys, the guy I bought it from told me it was a present from his wife from about five years ago (she doesn't know he is selling it:uhoh:). The stock is synthetic and the camo job looks real good, every thing except the bolt was camoed. My almost 12 year old grandson will have a hoot when he sees the gun.

SlamFire1, I'm new to the Model 70. What do I look for to see if it is push feed or a claw.

Or prop it up on tree.

...A picture is worth a thousand words.

Contrary to popular belief the push feed is generally a stronger design, the CRF is slightly more reliable and more desirable in the Win. M70. :)

The "G" prefix was instituted by Winchester when the 1968 gun control act came into effect.

That's a nice-looking Model 70! Thanks for posting the picture. Now take it to the range, and punch some targets, then post the pictures.
