Does anybody have a decent website listing dates of manufacturer for Model 70 Win--that would include reasonably recent year data as well as older? Thanks.

Try this one:

Only if you don't have a letter prefix

OK, for a G prefix (post-64 and to meet GCA 1968)) try this

Thanks for the responses. Ultimately had to call Winchester, they researched it and what I was looking at was an '84 push feed. Couldn't find later G numbers (81-06?) anywhere (not saying they're not out there, but if the list is - it's hiding!).

I recently purchased a booklet at my local gun shop. Its titled "WINCHESTER DATES OF MANUFACTURE 1849-2000 by George Madis. published by "Art and reference house Brownsboro, Texas 75756. The material is compiled from records at the winchester factory in New Haven and the Buffalo Bill Historical center in Cody WY.

I had an interest because of my Pre-64 model 70 chambered in .257 Roberts.
