As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 70 Classic Super Grade rifle chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. The Super Grade has nicer-grain wood with a nosecap, grip cap, cheekpiece and nicer checkering than would be found on the Standard Rifles and was the top of the line in the original Model 70 series. The Model 70 Classic series re-introduced the control-feed bolt of the originals. This example has been equipped with a nice Burris 4-16x scope and is in Excellent condition. Chambered in the popular 7mm Remington Magnum cartridge, this rifle is suitable for hunting just about any game in North America. This is a classic rifle in a great hunting cartridge that is ready to bag some game. It is also a beautiful gun which would be a nice addition to a Winchester collection.
