.264 Win Magnum Sporter Barrel - Stainless Steel - 90%
This is a 1960s Winchester pre 64 model 70 Sporter barrel chambered in .264 Winchester Magnum. It is a stainless steel barrel with what Rule refers to as “smoky blue” finish. This was an experimental finish used on stainless barrels for just one year. The finish looks more like the line-grain polish of a standard steel barrel and does not have the frosted-look of the iron plate blue which is found on most stainless barrels.
Bluing - the bluing is very good. A few minor blemishes, but overall 90%
Metal - there is one small nick 10" back from the muzzle and one or two other very minor scratches through the finish. No rust or pits.
Bore - Just about perfect. Bright with strong rifling. 9/10
