Whats the value of a 1956 win mod 70 featherweight

Serial # 37xxxx or g37xxxx wanna verify the year and find out what it's worth or ball park. Blue has very few handling marks as wood is in good shape with a few small handling marks would say easy 90%~95% could be better plus it has been glassed and a timney trigger installed . Any info would be great.thanks in advance!

Re: Whats the value of a 1956 win mod 70 featherweight

Im no model 70 expert or historian, but a pre64 model 70 in 7-08 sounds odd. I dont think the 7-08 was a factory chambered cartridge until the late 70's to early 80's. So most likely your rifle had been rebarreled/rechambered at some time. Once a rifle has been reworked in any way it takes away from the collectors value. When I am looking for a value on a gun I check out gunbroker or the Cabelas gun library and compare it to selling prices on a similiar gun.

Good luck, Tony

Believe your right and the g in front I'm thinking is early 90's but I'm not a collector or a gun expert. Not sure how far back jeweled bolts go either and the stock looks like possibly a laser design. Still like to find a ball park value

Featherweight classic there is one posted now on pennswoods for 800$ seems a bit crazy with a high country scope I believe(tasco)

Does your bolt look like the one on the top or bottom? Mainly the extractor (long flat piece that runs along the right hand side of the bolt).

Good luck, Tony

Introduced as a factory round in 1980. Yep.
