It hit the spot!
on June 27, 2014
It was a very good buy for the money, and made a very good gift for some one who is interested in collecting any specific type of Winchester Model 70 rifles. These books are collector books themselves, even when printed new, and the used book market for them keeps going up.
I think that the book is the very best one on Winchester Model 70 rifles, and any Winchester Model 70 collector needs one if wanting to be serious about collecting them. I went too long before getting one for myself. After I got mine, and had not even finished reading it, when I knew that my collector friend needed one, even more than I did. He had told me several times before that he did not need this book at all since he already knew every thing he needed to know about Model 70s. After receiving this gift, and after he just started to skim through it, he called me to tell me how much he liked it, and that he had already learned much more than he already knew. He told me that it had already given him a lot better idea what each Model 70 in his collection is worth, and what to lookout for in rare Pre 64 Model 70s that are up for sale, that have might have been changed to increase their value.
He told me that he would never part with this book as long as he continues to collect Pre 64 Model 70s, and I sure won't ever part with the one I now own.
