Pristine Pre 64 Model 70 In .22 Hornet


Now here is something you don’t see every day. A pristine, never used Pre 64 Model 70 Winchester transitional model in .22 Hornet.

They sure don’t make them like that anymore.


  1. I walked out of a state association annual meeting with the start of one of those a few years ago. Someone had given the association a big pile of miscellaneous crap and they had a garage sale in the lobby of the facility. I took home a stripped barreled receiver, a stock with butt plate and the front action screw for $45. When I say “stripped receiver”, that’s exactly what it was: no bolt, no bolt release, no ejector, no magazine assembly, no floor plate, no trigger, no sights. Now what to do with it. All the missing Hornet bits are pretty well unobtainium. Well for forty-five bucks, I couldn’t see leaving it there. Maybe someday I’ll do something with it. But what?

  2. I have a Browning A-bolt in .22 Hornet, and its easily my most accurate rifle. It took me two years of frustration and 2 moa groups untiI I discovered the Hornet handloading secrets. Now it’ll shoot half moa all day long.

    I love this calibre!

    • I owned a few 22 hornets over the years and never could get them to shoot better than 2 MOA. I prefer the.218 Bee by a country mile. wait till you see the custom Martini action 218 Bee Im about to buy soon
