I'm new here so thought I would say hi. Live in iowa and am 62 yeas old. About 4 years ago after dad passed away, I aquired his model 70 target rifle in 220 Swift. Serial No. 104xxx. He bought it new in Dec. 1948. Back in those days he shot bench rest only with it. It has never had a factory load put through it. All loads always used a graphite grease wad under the bullet. Barrel is in excelent condition yet. It has a J.W. Fecker 10 power scope on it which he also bought new then. The action and barrel is rubber bedded to the stock so the stock is part of the gun. Acording to his record book he did this in 1950. He drilled a small hole in the stock to remove the triger to adjust the spring other wise it can't be taken apart. He also added a home made muzzle brake that he says made a big difference. It could be removed to make the barrel stock again for it is just pressed on. The gun hasn't been used since around 1958. His average 3 shot groups were inside of a 3/8" circle at 100 yards. There was two 3 shot groups listed that were inside a 5/16" circle at 100 yards. He saved a lot of those targets though a little battered and fragile to handle now. His best groups were with sierra 48 gr. flat bottom bullets which I can't seem to find any more but I think there is stll some in his boxes of loading stuff. I also can't find the graphite grease sheets any more. What do you all use now? Any way I was wondering if It might have come with some kind of attachment that goes on under the front of the stock. There is a row of taped holes in a plate with one shouldered screw in one of the holes. Did Winchester make or sell something that went here? I am thinking of useing the gun again. At least some. Would it hurt its value? I'm not sure what value it even has but know it should be higher then some other cals. of that period. Wouldn't think there would have been to many made with the varmint barrel and target stock in 220 swift in that year.
