    Winchester Mod 70 30/06 with Lyman Targetspot - Vietnam era sniper build

    Here we have a nice original rifle for a repro Vietnam era USMC sniper rifle build. A'la Carlos Hathcock...
    Pre 64 Model 70 Winchester in 30/06, built 1951. Mint, almost new stock with little blemishes. Metalwork with some loss of finish but no pitting or rust.
    Barrel rates around 7/10. Still puts 3x 150gr Hornady Interlocks into an inch at 100 yards.
    12x Lyman Targetspot scope, clear optics with crisp fine cross hair reticle and adjustable objective. On Unertl style scope mounts, the correct 7.2 inches apart for 1/4 moa clicks.
    Was eventually going to screw in the sniper weight barrel and get some wider sling swivels, but have other projects now on the go. If your into these you know how tough it is to find this stuff in NZ, especially the scope.
    Would be an awesome vintage rifle to take to your next long-range competition.
    After $1900ono.
    Pm for contact.
