I picked an exc cond rifle with Weaver K6 scope at auction today and can't find a value in my references.
Is this the same action as the model 70?

It is listed in The Blue Book of Gun Values, Vol. 25, p. 1669.
100% $300
98% $250
95% $220
90% $195
It seems to me that anything in 264 Win. caliber brings a higher price.

I don't believe this model was ever chambered for 264 Win. Your post does not say anything about the caliber. Sorry

Carbine version from 67-70 w/19in. bbl, not available in .308

Magnum version with a reinforced stock from 67-70 in .264,7mm,and .300 mag....magnum brings about $30 more in 100%

As mentioned, the 670 is an economy version of the Model 70, with the addition of a blind magazine. The action is the same, so there is no real dimunition in the accuracy of the gun. Some say the 670 will become more collectable in the rare cals (225 and 264 ) as more and more of the model 70's in those cals are shot out. This theory is belied a bit, I think by the fact that the 670 being cheaper and considered more of a utilitarian gun would tend to be shot more; go figure.

The 225 is a wonderful round ( I have 5 guns chambered in it now, all factory Winnies and Savages) and will do pretty much anything the 22-250 will do, perhaps with a little more pinnoche, and certainly with a better "dare to be different" quotient. I have heard miraculous stories (haven't we all!) of the accuracy potential of this round in single shots such as converted 1885 Winchesters and the like. With the design of the round (one of my favorite handloading rounds) it's not too hard to believe this might be so.

There is a nice gentleman on our sight who is trying to move a 670 in 225 with a buy it now price of $650 and has thus far had no takers (it is about mint); my feeling is he's trying to extract too much of the potential collectors price before it is really warranted. However, if it's worth that much to him, sometime down the road it will likely be worth that much to someone else.

At any rate, congratulations on the purchase, and welcome to the oddfellows cartridge club!

P.S. Brass is available from WCC-1 on this site; I've been pleased with him in our dealings.
