I was looking for a deer rifle in a 243 and found this, it was not my first choice as I was looking for a Tikka or even an older Ithaca. I came across this Winchester and the price, just couldn't pass it up. It has a Montecarlo stock w/black end cap, very nice wood. However I know next to nothing about this rifle except Winchester's reputation. Any and all input would be very helpful, including value, compare to other rifles, and maybe how old it is. The serial number is G1434800. Thanks for all help.
