View Full Version : value of pre-64 model 70?

January 5, 2001, 06:36 PM
Hi all. I have a pre-64 Winchester Model 70 Super Grade in .458 WM. I am under the impression that this rifle is known as the "African", although no such nomenclature appears on the rifle. It is in %95 condition. I believe only several thousand of these were made. I am considering selling this rifle in order to feed my shotgun addiction. What do you think the current value is? Thanks in advance for your help.

Vanfunk, Winchester made the Model 70 Super Grade African from 1956-1963 with 1,226 produced, all chambered in .458 Win. Mag. At 95% condition it could be worth about $3,250. Hope this helps!
