    I have a gorgeous Winchester model 71 .348 caliber rifle that I am thinking about selling. I need to raise some cash for a project. This is an honest 96-97% rifle that is all original. No extra holes, tight as new, with a few normal handling marks. It was made in 1951 which makes it the short tang version with regular sights. These are getting really hard to find in all original condition. I am not going to post pictures as this is a serious investment gun that need to be seen in person. I am asking $2200 for it and arrangements can be made to see it on weekends. I live in the Albany, Oregon area, close to I-5.

    Slow sale or no sale is fine with me;) Salem is 20 minutes away.

    Sorry for the delay in response. I was out of town for a few days. The posted rifle is a standard rifle. I do have a first year deluxe rifle with the bolt peep. It too is unaltered with no extra holes and all original with the sling. I would grade it at well over 95%. I would consider selling it for $4500. The prices aren't cheap, but the material is awesome!:thumbup:
