My first pre-64 Model 70 Winchester. It was a standard grade .30-06 made in 1939. It had a Lyman 48 peep sight and shot beautiful groups. I have a pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight .308 made in 1954 and a 1962 Model 70 Alaskan .375 H&H now, but neither one takes the place of that old .30 Govt' 06.
I needed trade money to get other stuff back then. I traded it on a Mauser Model 66 with a Kahles Scope and three barrels, so it wasn't like I suffered too bad.
