I picked up the very nice pre-war Model 70 in .270 Win. that the nice gentleman had on his table up at the front of the hall. He was asking $875 for it, I thought that was quite a good price for the condition of the gun after I checked on-line.
One feature that made the gun interesting was that it lacked sling swivels. I looked very closely - there is no signs that they were ever installed. I've looked at a lot of Win 70s over the years and i don't recall ever seeing one with out swivels before. Anybody got any information on a Mdl 70 lacking the normal sling swivels?
The gun is the 12,XXX serial number range so it would have been made in 1937 according to my reference.
