I am looking for a bolt for a post 1964 Winchester Model 70 classic chambered in 270. Any ideas?
Thanks a bunch!!

I was going to suggest Numrich Gun Parts but they appear to be sold out. You may try contacting them and see if they can tell you when they will have it.

Try gunbroker. .270 shares the same bolt as the .30-06, 25-06 and several other calibers.
HOWEVER: Even when you find a bolt that works, you MUST get the gun checked for proper headspace. You might get lucky and the new bolt headspaces correctly but you won't know until you run a set of go/no-go gauges through it.

What Doyle said.... :)
And here's your bolt...
Or just by the whole gun. Here's a DEAL on a mint condition pre-64....

double check warbird's link because I think its the wrong bolt for you. Post 64 pushfeed is what you need apperently

OH! POST-64. DUH! Sorry..... :rolleyes:
Couldn't find any links for that...

Winchester changed the bolt a bit in 1972, they added an anti bind rail in the receiver and the left side bolt lug has a notch cut in it that rides down the rail. A mid 60s bolt will not work in a mid 70s rifles.
