Winchester Model 70 Featherweight 358 Win 1955

This Winchester model 70 was made in 1955 (SN 377248) and features a 22” barrel with integral front ramp supporting a hooded bead, folding adjustable rear sight, matte finished receiver, 3 position wing safety, hollow bolt knob, alloy bottom metal, checkered walnut stock with sling swivels and checkered aluminum butt plate. (Please see photos for markings – “54” on bottom of barrel is not shown.) Finally, the bolt and receiver serial numbers match - all of which is correct according to West in his definitive WINCHESTER FOR OVER A CENTURY - it is in original condition (though Weaver bases have been installed atop the receiver which can be easily removed if desired). The original barrel was removed and a 243 barrel was installed by the dealer/gunsmith and the barrel retained by him. Years later the rifle was sold back to the dealer/gunsmith and the original (current) 358 Win barrel was re-installed and the only evidence of the excursion is a series of tiny scratches indicative of web wrench use on the top of the barrel in the chamber area. It retains about 92% of what appears to be original metal finish with some slight oxidation spotting here and there and one tiny spot of cleaned rust on the left barrel (outside) 4” from the muzzle thinning on the edges, bolt knob and guard bow while the bore is perfectly smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling. The stock is completely sound with scattered scratches and dings and what appears to be original finish. A rare version of the Rifleman’s Rifle to be sure and in top condition with a strange story to boot.
