Default winchester 270 model 70 featherweight classic

yes i have a question about a rifle i just got like the title says it is a winchester 270 model 70 featherweight classic. the guy said it is a pre 64 but i do not believe it is but how would i know if it is. the bolt looks like it has a diamond plate design it is real wood and is in remarkable shape would also like to know kind of what it is worth.

Pre 64 Model 70's are considered to be the holy grail of rifles by some people. I really like them, but I like all model 70's no matter when they were made.

I think the serial is how you tell the date, someone who knows more than I will chime in I'm sure.

I've seen some pre 64's go for $2,500 But the cheapest I've seen one is $1,200. I'm sure there could be even more variation than that.

Give us some pics, we love our gun porn.

The serial number is the easiest way to determine date of manufacture. If the number has a letter "G" in it then it is a post 64. The word classic leads me to believe it is a post 64 built similiar but not the same as the pre's. I have shot and used these guns for over 40 years so I do have some first hand knowledge.
