    I might be wrong but I don't believe Winchester made a short M70 action pre-64.

    Is anyone interested in a pre64 walnut stock for a win short action--i think it came off a 243--a shooting buddy was having a yardsale and wanted rid of the stock, so i figured somebody on here may have a need for one--it is in good functional shape other than a split down the right side--it was professionally repaired awhile ago and seems like the original finish, and good checkering.

    it is also missing sling swivels, but that can be fixed by a trip to walmart.

    How much is this worth? perfect ones go for a couple hundred, but the split has cut the value a lot. make an offer

    If anyone is interested, i can send detailed pics.

    let me know--email me at XXjb1000brXX@XXyahoo.com -->take out the X's

    thanks,
    JB

    jb1000br,

    My Pre-'64 .243 is on the standard length Winchester action with a modified box. That's how they handled it as far as I know, the box was adjusted for the cartridge.

    Regards.

    What is the distance btwn your front and rear action screw (center to center)?

    I will try to measure mine and get back.
    Thanks,

    The hole spacing between the front and rear guard screws is 7.5" on pre-64 and post 64 (long action) M70s. Even the 22 Hornet was a factory chambering on the pre-64 M70s full size action. The short action came out later in the post-64 actions.
