Both the forend and the buttstock show quite a few dings with minor oil staining around the receiver and barrel. Both sides of the buttstock show a crack that runs from the buttplate to in front of the back end of the lower tang. There is another crack close to the toe that runs from the buttplate forward about 4” on both sides of the stock, plus at least one more crack on the right side just above the long crack.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: The .218 Bee is a .224 caliber centerfire rifle cartridge designed for varmint hunting by Winchester in 1938 and was originally chambered in their lever-action rifles. The cartridge is named for the bore diameter of the barrel, not the bullet diameter. In terms of relative performance, the .218 Bee falls between the smaller .22 Hornet and the larger and more popular .223 Rem. The bore on this rifle is in great condition, so this rifle ought to be a lot of fun to shoot. It ought to be especially good for rabbits past 100 yards where the energy of a .22 Long Rifle begins to fade.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
