    Hi guys, take a look at this sweet little number. She's a Winchester M70XTR Featherweight .270 with a Ziess Diavari C 3-9x42 scope. Also has a BEAUTIFUL Maple stock and gold plated trigger/scope rings/safety lever. What did i pay for it u ask???? Try $700.00 at a garage sale :) To say im happy is an understatment. Also came with a really nice stainless steel rifle case.

    It's not something I know much about. However, I think the scope is worth what you paid (maybe more)!

    Nice find!

    PS- where in the world are you yard sailing :) ?

    Way more than jealous.

    Oh, I'm gonna barf! :barf:

    Jeez, you may as well go buy a lotto ticket as long as you're on a lucky streak.
    The scope alone is worth about half that or so.... ugh....I gotta go barf again.
    :barf:

    ......wow. That zeiss i could be worth around 600 alone--I know they are where I work. You got ONE HECKUVA DEAL, man.............any chance you want to sell it to me, as is, for that price? I'd give $750 for it, you could make a quick profit.....

    By the way guys, did i mention it will put Federal Premium 130gr. ammo through one hole at 50 yds.?? Also asked my unkle about the stock, he said alone it would probably run about $500.00 for the exhibition grade, 100% figured maple stock after finishing and all. HAPPY :) The only thing i dont like is the Ziess's eye relief is a little too short at 9x.

    I got it from a garage sale at a HUGE!!!, fancy, waterfront brick house. The sad thing was, when i was paying for this rifle the guy taking the money said that "i should have been here earlier, there were some really good deals". -tear/cry-:(

    everyone seems to be leaving out the fact that the hunk of wood the rifle is sitting in is worth a pretty penny. A stock sized chunk of AA-AAA flame maple is not cheap.

    Just ran onto a problem. The action cant be removed from the stock. Im guessing the bedding compound caused a mechanical lock around the recoil lug area. hmmmm...... Try as i might it wont come loose.

    It's a little pimpalicious for my taste, but it sounds like you got a great deal.
