    I have a Winchester Model 70 Alaskan 300 with a 3x9 Kowa scope to sell. I am now not sure what it is worth since it appears to be a post '64. It was my Dads and I don't hunt anything that requires that kind of fire power. WinMdl70.jpg

    Nice looking setup..

    FYI:
    Alaskan:
    The Alaskan could be had in either a 338 Win mag. or the 375 H&H mag. It came with a 25" barrel.

    To All - I've been doing my serial number homework and this appears to be a post '64 and therefore not such a "classic". Markings on barrel state Winchester 300 Magnum. Please let me know if I'm way off base on my asking price. Thanks to all.

    I don't know how old you are, but some day you may regret selling your fathers rifle. The rifle IMO is worth $500 to $600. The scope made by Kowa is of very high quality. Howa is an old Japanese company that still sells high dollar spotting scopes. Finding someone that wants the scope may take some time. I am told the scopes were never marked itn th USA and probably came home with a serviceman. Do some research. Keep it for Elk hunting. Ken
