I was in Cabelas today and found a pre 64 model 70 in 30.06. It was manufactured in 1947 and still has a good barrel. Different piece of wood on it as well as a Lyman Challenger scope with a post reticle. The action was butter smooth and was in amazing shape. They wanted 900 so I had them put it on a 5 day hold for me till I found out more. Is this a good deal? I really only want the action.
I plan on taking it and building a really great 30.06.
