    Well, thank you for the credit! I did look too see if there was exposed lead, but couldn't see any.

    The last bullet I think is one of the Hornady DGS bullets. I wish Remington to commercialize the 416 Taylor rather than what they did.

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    It's certainly not going to sell for anything like the current price. I hadn't noticed he still said it was "first year" of production until sesestoppelman mentioned it. That he took "1937" out of the title suggests he knows that's off the mark.

    Anyone A big Smith & Wesson Collector For Sale

    I would be tempted by the batch except I live in California, and all but two (I think) are off limits because they are not on the "roster." Probably a good reason to move elsewhere, but at least is saves me from myself.

    I bet you're right about the GI listing. Can't imagine anyone with that much to spend on a rifle would be dumb enough to buy that one.

    Very nice rifle indeed. The metal surfaces under the wood could not be cleaner. Looks like new.

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    To avoid confusion, I'll make explicit that I described the GunsInternational listing because it is another ridiculous assertion (and funny), but as far as I know, that seller has no connection to the listing here on AfricaHunting.

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    Made in 1954? Well could have fooled me. I had no idea Winchester was making all stainless guns that early. Here's an equally ridiculous claim on GunsInternational now (search item no. 101529120). $14,500! It's actually a recently made Winchester custom shop rifle. I think they made a small...

    Finish Reamer and FL Size die set for 338 Win Mag

    Selling a Clymer finish reamer for 338 win mag. I bought it second hand. It is in great shape, no chips or corrosion. Sharp. It was used once while I owned it, don't know the history otherwise. $40 shipped in the US RCBS FL resizing and bullet seating dies for 338 Win Mag. Great shape. Bought...

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    I really don't know if the "G" guns are more valuable. They wouldn't be to me. I do like the Pre-64s, esp. those from the mid-50s and older, but have to admit that's at least partly nostalgia on my part. They are all good rifles, in my opinion. Of course, like any rifle that's been manufactures...

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    Well, it ("G") is the prefix for the rifles made in the New Haven location before that iteration of Winchester ended manufacturing them. That was about 2006 IIRC. After about 2 years FN began manufacturing Model 70s with the Winchester name in South Carolina. The first few years the guns were...

    For Sale Winchester Mod 70 375 H&H

    I'm not the OP and have no connection to the seller or rifle. But, Warpig, I can tell you that the New Haven guns (Serial No. starts with G) had rear sights like this one, and have a round bolt shroud, also like this one. The FN guns have a flat surface on the right hand side of the bolt shroud...

    For Sale Browning BSS Side By Side 20 Gauge Shotgun

    This is one of the mid-late 70s BSS guns with the selector switch to choose the firing order. It is 20 ga and has 28" barrels and is in all original condition. It is choked fairly tight - I think it is Mod (or Imp Mod) in the right barrel, and Full in the left. The bores are mirror bright with...

    For Sale Husqvarna Super Grade FN Action 270 Rifle

    Thank you gentlemen for your kind comments. I enjoyed learning about refinishing and experimenting with the amount of stain that would be needed to deal with the strange orange color that the stock had come to show. Prior to beginning the finish process with Permalin, I sealed the stock fully...

    For Sale Husqvarna Super Grade FN Action 270 Rifle

    This is an early ‘50s Husqvarna “Super Grade” in 270. It has been refinished by a careful amateur (me) using the components recommended by experienced gunmakers on this board, including Permalin. The finish is very smooth and is a semi gloss. The photos represent the color fairly well. The...

    For Sale Fixer Searcy Double In 500/416 NE

    That's how I see it as well. I will use my Ruger No. 1. Only question is if it will be the 375, the 450/400, or the 458. But it's good to have choices. FWIW, I think Mr. Searcy's response was seriously off the mark and sub par. If buying an expensive gun from a one person operation, one has to...

    For Sale Vintage Holland & Holland .375 H&H Magnum Best Sporting Magazine Rifle

    My goodness, what a nice classic rifle that is. I am certainly no expert on pricing for pieces such as this, but it seems like a very good price for an H&H in this condition in that caliber.

    For Sale Winchester 70 XTR Featherweight 7MM Mauser

    I had a model 70 in 270 from this era of manufacture. These are good guns. The later New Haven rifles had some problems, as most people are aware. And they have the original model 70 trigger design, unlike the current FN manufactured rifles. Great caliber.

    Ruger No 1 375 H&H For Sale

    True. The 375 H&H should be a staple in the No. 1 line up. I do like the 375 Ruger in a bolt action, and have one, but don’t see the point in the No. 1. I was tempted by this stainless/ laminated example. If I indulged every such temptation the house would be overflowing with them and the...

    Ruger #1 in big bore calibers

    This thread apparently began in 2014, so it’s clear the issue won’t be resolved here. still entertaining to hash it out though. That said, I don’t really understand the recoil problem people describe with these. I have No. 1 rifles in 458, 450/400 and 375. I also own several in smaller calibers...

    I love the Ruger No. 1 rifle’s and have seven or eight of them. They are addictive! If someone has a nice example of one of the varmint models in 223 we could talk about a trade.

    For Sale Ruger M77 Hawkeye African 338

    Hi Para45, Well, for one thing I already have a 375 Ruger and a Ruger No. 1 in 375 H&H! (Gun nut, of course, like all of us). Also, the Hawkeye actions are standard length and won't accommodate the H&H round without major surgery.

    I bought this new about three and a half years ago for Namibia trip. It must have been one of those rifles made on a later Friday afternoon.

    It is the same, except it does have the original model 70 trigger as opposed to the current enclosed “MOA trigger.” That is an advantage to your rifle, in my opinion.

    The XTR 80s guns are nice rifles. Your 300 H&H is probably even more scarce than the 7x57. My two fav calibers.
