This is a Winchester Model 70 manufactured in 1948. It was originally purchased by my great uncle, a WWI medic who later became a medical doctor. Chambered in .270 and topped with a Weaver 4x scope, he took it to Wyoming frequently to hunt antelope and mule deer. He died in 1967, and my dad's oldest brother wound up with it. He never hunted with it, so the gun hasn't been fired in close to 50 years. The bore is beautiful, and, after giving it a good cleaning, I'm taking it to the range soon. My plan is to take it whitetail hunting this fall as is, unless the scope won't hold zero. I'm looking forward to it.
