  1. #1

    Default Pre-64 .264 Mag.

    Selling a Pre-64 Win. Mod. 70 .264 Win. Mag. manufactured in 1960.

    26" barrel with a very good looking bore.

    Has a hand rubbed oil finish.

    Iron sights, but missing front sight hood.

    Blueing and over all condition of rifle is very good.

    Wearing an old Baush & Lomb 2 x 8 power scope and adjustments are in the bases which are quick detach.

    Asking $1,600.00 cash in Kenai.

    Send a PM with a # and I will text a couple pics.

    That caliber has been known as a "barrel burner". Any idea how many rounds have been down the barrel? Original barrel and stock?

    Thanks

    I have a pre64 in a 264wm and you really can't eye the barrel. The only way to really determined the quality of the barrel is by shoot for group off a bench rest. I am sure that a good gunsmith may be able to take a look at the lands / groves for ware.

    According to my Dad who purchased it in 1960 for deer and antelope in Montana and Wyoming I would say not more then 300 rounds and no strings over 5 rounds were fired with out a barrel cool down period. Dad was an old school blacksmith and understood heat and metal. He used that rifle and 140 grain Nosler Partitions on his moose and caribou hunts.

    I think some of the press the sub .30 caliber magnum rounds received years ago is over rated. Remington tossed some of it out there in an effort to promote their very good 7 mm mag.

    Maybe

    Is it the slip on sight hood?

    just to let you know the SA new haven classics are very hard to come by the stainless SA are even harder. Majority of them are low 5 digit classics. To the later run where they ran into the high 6 digit classics.

    It is the slip on front sight hood.

    Yes, the .243 I want is hard to find, but I am patient, learned patience the hard way.

    I had a line on one here a few months back and by the tine I decided to do it the gentlemen decided to keep it.

    Still have it. I thought the 6.5 was all the rage these days. If I hunted out West in America I would put a different scope on it and use it on every thing.
    I just hunt Alaska and I am stuck on the 30-06 and .338 Win. Mag.

    Any way I will lower the price to $1,500.00.
