Thread: Winchester Mod 270 22lr??

    Winchester Mod 270 22lr??

    guess this may just apply to the north American folks (???), but has anyone got one? Just ran across one at a reasonable price that would satisfy my "NEED" for a small caliber but know nothing about them... Looks like a good little rifle (pics only at the moment).... Wondering if they are drilled & tapped for a scope rail or grooved (??)... like the idea of being able to use shorts in it also... Thanks for any tips...

    I know it well. My younger brother ( and hundreds of other students ) won one for selling magazine subscriptions to "Progressive Farmer" about 1965.

    The principal announced it over the PA system. We went to the office and picked it up and rode home on the school bus with it. He still has it, now with a 4x scope on it.

    It was a modern replacement for the older pumps of the 1930s. It is not as nice a rifle as those, but it was cool for us. Make sure the firing pin and extractor work, and the firing pin spring is still strong. That is the only thing about rifles like this, which were not made in huge quantities for decades... not enough spare parts.

    And even harder to get here I guess..... Maybe I'd better pass and stick with a bolt action that is more common... Thanks.

    Well, my brother has shot enough rounds through his to sink a small boat, and I am still shooting my Marlin from the same year, without anything breaking, so don't let me scare you off it.

    They come with a groove in the receiver for 3/8 inch rimfire ring mounts.
    The rifle will handle shorts, longs and long rifle ammuntion, 16 LR, 18 Long, 21 Short.
    Barrel is 20.5 inches.
    Weighs about 5 lbs.
    The Deluxe Model 270 has a raised comb and nicer wood.
    Made from 1963 to 1973... relatively rare. More people were buying semi-autos then.
    Prices in the US run between $200 and $350.00, depending on condition.

    just got delivered a little bit ago.... Looks like new except for a couple light scratches on the buttstock everything tight and looks hardly used...

    If you don't have a scope for it, I recommend the very inexpensive Hawke HD 4x32mm Mil Dot.
