I orginally went looking for a pre-64 Winchester Model 70. And I'm really picky about guns I collect, most of their parts have to be original, and with the pre-64 model 70's, if there is no butt plate and there is a recoil pad instead I don't even bother (not trying to sound like a snob) but I did find the model 70 I was looking for, but on the table across from it I spotted the beauty! The guy selling it said, some guy traded it and he wanted to get rid of it as fast as he could. I'm excited to shoot it! But, I'm going to be careful and not buy .44-40 ammo off the shelf at a store and will reload some cartriges that'll have low muzzle velocity so it won't damage the barrel too much.
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux
