My Panic Induced Purchase

Rings and bases for my 1949 Winchester Model 70 in .257 Roberts:



I know I should have been more resolute in the face of overwhelming odds, and that it is wrong in so many ways to follow the herd, but I was losing sleep worrying that Weaver bases and rings from the late 1940's might become hard to get with everyone making a run on shooting related items.

Fortunately, I had the foresight to get a scope mounted on the 2011 .257 Kimber with current production Talleys before it was too late.

Hey, since you got two, how about I trade you out of that Winchester? Got a nice nib Bushmaster I could part with.

It was meant to be. Been looking for that exact gun for some years. A family member has one but he's not letting it go either.

You left out "high capacity"

Magazine holds multiple rounds, and a new one is chambered with each operation of the bolt handle.

Here it is, all scoped up:





I was lucky to get this rig in before the ban is instituted.
Hope it's grandfathered
