    I hope someone, somewhere - will have the zeros in his account to buy them and shoot the tar out of them.

    It's kind of a rip if you have to put it on your credit card and loose the cash discount.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    .

    It brings new meaning to "pre-64"...

    .
    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I could buy 4375 Howas for that. One of them is bound to be a shooter.

    Aw come on Lloyd that's only 175 bucks we don't want to insult the guy. I'll bid $900 on the pair. Heck I'll even throw in a well used pre 64 Ford pickup.

    Dirty sucker won't even let you place a bid. I was going to $1.15M but I guess he's holding out

    truthfully 900 a piece would be a fair offer. I just never saw the hoopla around the pre 64 70s. To me there kind of blocky and homely like the first gen ruger 77s but even worse. Want a nice 70 take that 900 bucks and buy yourself a brand new featherweight. Fit and finish put the old guns to shame and they shoot better to boot.

    Quite impressed with one guy owning both SN#1 and #2 from 1936 and in that original shape.

    They probably should go to Cody!

    There's some "As Seen On TV" infomercial potential here:

    "Buy the Number 1 Winchester Model 70 for only one and three-quarters million dollars, and we'll throw in the Number 2 Model 70 for FREE! (Just pay separate shipping charges)"

    The Cody Museum really is the place for those. What they're worth is kind of ephemeral. . . Yes, they're the product of a very special era, when American industry had grown up, but a lot of America was still wild, and yes, they're the lowest-numbered versions of what is arguably the best mass-produced deer rifle ever made. . .but they're still mass-produced deer rifles, that we're owned by or used on Presidents, industrialists, or movie stars - they went out with Bubba and hunted deer.

    OTOH, mass produced deer rifles ain't what they used to be. I just helped clean up and restock a Remington Hepburn single shot from the 1880's (BEAUTIFUL gun), and at several spots along the way, I wanted to take pictures and send them to Remington with a letter asking "What the hell happened to you guys anyway?" The prime source for classic blued American Steel these days is Italy, and they aren't making the bolt guns, so I can sorta see how some rich rabbit might get misty-eyed for a rare sampling of the real stuff.
