Default Help with rifle choice

A friend has two rifles he wants to sell.

The first is a Husqvarna 7mm.

Or a Winchester model 70 1930s era in 30-06

I am going to check them out next week. Haven't talked price yet. Any thoughts or suggestions for when I look at them?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I did not get an exact age on the Husky. I'm sure its twenty plus. These were his dad's rifles. Says they are in great shape and both are beautiful. He wants fair market, we will check blue book if I'm serious.

I could possibly be intersted in the 30-06 if the price is right....

And why not the other?
Is a husky a bad choice?
Or is a 7mm a poor round?

I personally have no experience with husky rifles so I can't say. I would assume with the quality of their equipment(again assuming it's the same company) they would not risk puttin their name on a total piece....just my logic, could be wrong.

Why not 7mm? I personally have no need for it. I've shot one, recoil isn't bad, accurate, they're known to shoot flat and carry good energy. Its a .28 magnum, I don't know what you're hunting but I wouldn't hesitate to use that on deer, elk, black bear, ect....

I have a bunch of 30-06 ammo and I really like the round, that's why I would go for the Winchester. Plus, I wouldn't mind having an early model 70.

I've read that the pre 64 70s are collectors. I'm sure this guy knows that.

He said that the winny was a single shot. But when reading up on the 70s they say it holds five rounds. Did they make a single shot?

Buy the pre-'64 Winchester and don't look back.

That is THE Rifleman's Rifle, and it's chambered in God's own cartridge.

A .30-06 in a Pre-'64 Winchester is exactly what Carlos used in Vietnam to do some serious damage.

You could probably strip everything off the weapon and sell just the action to someone like me for what the guy wants for the gun, unless he knows what that action is truly worth....

I have a little experence with Husqvara rifles and they are fine rifles. I am a collector and sudent of Winchesters especially model 70,s. If you can give me some more imfo on the rifle I may be able to help. The model 70,s are very valuable IF and only if they are left completely original.Once altered their collector status wains. If alter you still have the ultimate hunting rifle, sought after by custom gunsmiths as a basis for high dollar custom rifles.They are the standard all others are based upon. Their actions have been called a sculture in steel.
