So i was offered a pre-64 winchester ( his claim was 1952) with an after market match grade barrel from a guy who inherited the rifle. He said he just wanted to get rid of it because it will not shoot factory rounds, the guy who he inherited it from put a "Match Burner" barrel as he kept calling it, on the rifle. Just by talking to the guy it was clear that he had no idea what he had as he offered it to me or anyone that is interested $350 with the scope(an old leupold.) I saw the rifle, looks like the stock is original, but i was not able to see the serial number- would it be on the action? and if so where? He didn't know how many times the rifle had been fired, but from the outside it looked like it was in good shape (minimal wear, and no rust.) My second question is Would this be a wise investment? is the action itself worth anything? And if not dollar wise, would it be worth taking this action and building a rifle with it?
