RIFLES
This is a custom pre '64 Model 70 Winchester - .280 REMINGTON caliber - built on a standard Model 70 action - serial # 205315, manufactured in 1951 as a 30-'06 Springfield. I had the barrel replaced with a 24 inch Lilja Precision in .280 Remington and the metal butt plate replaced with a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad. It has a Leupold 3-9x40mm VX-II scope. The original Model 70 was produced from 1936 to 1963. It is known as "The Rifleman's Rifle". It became a legend in its own time, the favorite hunting rifle of knowledgeable sportsmen and gun writers of the era who sang its praises. Since the Winchester Model 70 made its appearance in 1936, it has been the standard by which all other bolt action rifles are judged. The pre '64 Model 70 Winchester is one of the greatest firearms ever produced for sporting purposes anywhere in the world.

This is a custom Type II Browning BAR - .280 REMINGTON caliber - serial # 137 NM 30815. It has a 22 inch barrel and a Leupold 3-9x40mm VX-II scope.

I converted it to .280 Remington by having the barrel, gas regulator and magazine replaced with new .280 Remington ones.
