Winchester Model 70 “Custom” Super Grade “Express” 458 Win. Mag. N.I.B.

Beautiful 458 WM from the Winchester Custom Shop in New Haven Conn. I purchased it in 1992.

Asking Price: $2,750 plus shipping and insurance.

Please PM, post, or email to discuss. I will consider all reasonable offers.

I have other Model 70’s NIB, most calibers.

BTW,

The tag on the end of the box says the barrel is 22".

The letter from US Repeating Arms says 24".

Do you know which one is accurate?
 
Good catch on the barrel length, I had never noticed that error now I need to check all my others. I will confirm the correct ang get back to you. Thanks Wclint.
 
Measuring the action and barrel in the photograph, then comparing the photographed action to a known Win 70 action of same issue determined a ratio of length in photo to actual length. According to my calculation, the barrel is 22". Which isn't surprising because 22" is the length of a similar M70 458 that I had. Being somewhat of a whimp I had the barrel replaced with a 24" with heavier taper.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
