I know all you guys like Sniper Rifles, so here is the last one from my collection. (1954), Winchester M70, 30-06, medium weight bbl. sporting a 1955 vintage Lyman STS marked for the US Air Force. Rifle is papered from, Gen. Van Orden, Evaluators LTD. as being sold to the US Army at the 9-3- 1954 National Matches. It is US marked, but some MORON thought it best to grind the US marking off. You can still see it, however it is near gone. The rifle may have seen duty in Viet Nam according to Mr. Peter Senich the author of many fine Sniper books. It does appear in the last one,"The one round war". A gift from a friend, it will remain in my safe although I do not collect these anymore.
No, I have yet to fire it. Big Larry
