Happy New Yr guys
Yeah, that does seem a little high, but I'll bet it was nice. I'm sure the price is largely due to the caliber. Happy New year, and talk to you SOON.

I know very little about the Winchester actions, so are you saying a claw extractor Win action can only be a Pre 64?

Yup, if it had " the claw", similar to a Mauser action, that is a pre-64 remake. Or sometimes, they are referred to as classics. The Winchester is a awesome action, in either of it's three configurations . They have the Pre-64 action, the post 64 push feed which is similar to a Remington, and now, they have the CRF,( controlled round feed). That action is designed to engage the round from the magazine, and slips over the rim BEFORE it engages the chamber, rather then " bump over" when it is pushed in, and seated into the chamber. The pre 64 did the same thing, but it had a larger extractor, known as the " Claw". Impressed Butterbean?

If it has a claw extactor its known as a Pre 64 action ........They stopped making that action in 64 but have reintroduced several times since then

The Claw extractor is the original Pre-64 model 70. They changed to a push feed-flat bottomed reciever for a while and it's the same style of reciever that they use for the WSSM actions. They have, for quite a while made mo 70s with the original claw extraxtors thus making them just like the pre-64 actions.
