This is a Winchester Model 70 Classic Compact, bolt-action rifle chambered in 7mm-08. The first year these guns were manufactured was 1998. This rifle has a 20" barrel with an excellent bore. The gun has a checkered walnut stock with a pre-64 type action and 4 shot magazine. L.O.P. on this Classic Compact is 13" making it an excellent gun for a youth or smaller adult. There are no sights on the gun, however these guns are factory-drilled and tapped for scope mounts (see photos).
The barrel, action, floor plate, and trigger guard are blue and the bolt body is jeweled. Blue is 99% with a few very small scratches on top of the action between the rear scope mounting screws. There is also a thin 2-inch scratch in the floor plate. Otherwise the metal is in excellent condition and like-new (see photos).
As mentioned the gun has a checkered walnut stock with front and rear swivel studs. The wood is in excellent condition showing a nice satin finish with great looking checkering in the forearm and grip. There are no cracks or chips in the wood (see photos). There are some minor spots on the recoil pad that appear to be gun grease. Some of the spots came off easily, the others need a little bit more work, but should come off without too much problem. Otherwise, the Winchester recoil pad is also in excellent condition.
Overall this Winchester Model 70 is in excellent condition mechanically and in appearance. Serial #G2546286. STK. #11949.
