Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. Not new to shooting and firearms, but I sure dont know it all, so I hope that you all can be some help to me, and if I can, I'll try to be some help to anyone who I can be. I recently was given a couple of .22s from a good friend. One is a Winchester model 270 pump. I cleaned it up, added a 4x scope, sling swivels and a sling. Went to the range to zero the scope and see how she shot. I was quite surprised. This little 270 pump is very accurate, and functions flawlessly. I don't know if anyone here has had any dealings with this model, if so, I would like to hear your impressions. Also, I have no idea of the value of this rifle. All the blueing is in good shape, the walnut stock and forend are in great shape and are of the fancy checkering. If anyone knows about what it is worth, please let me know. The other .22 that my friend gave me is an older Marlin model 700 semi-auto. It too cleaned up nice. I added a 4x scope, sling swivels,and a sling. It to is very accurate, and functions flawlessly. The walnut stock is in great shape. I did some searching on this model and came up with nothing, so I called Marlin, and was told that the rifle is basicly the model 70 Marlin, and for a short time they were mis stamped by adding another 0 to the model 70. I guess kinda like a coin being mis printed at the mint, and then being put into circulation before it's caught. I don't know how reliable this info is, so if anyone knows anything different, I sure would like to hear it. And with this too, I have no idea of the value of the rifle. All the blueing is in great shape, the bore is good, and the walnut stock is in great shape. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to all, and share this little story.
