    Have one that my dad received in high school (1947) RARE .300 Savage So rare that value usually can't be found in print. Most resources say 'too rare to quote price'. I will probably donate to a museum like the Cody or Russell if they want it?

    No way you donate your Dad's gun to a musuem unless it makes you feel real good.

    Pass it down to a family member or sell it and buy something you like.

    Here is a picture of my 1962 model 70 in 375 Holland & Holland. The gun is unaltered from the day it came down the assembly line, still has the original recoil pad.

    Pretty rare caliber for the gun. It has taken both elephant and cape buffalo.

    Top pic is of my pre War .270 bought new and stocked by my Grandfather in the summer of 1941. It's accounted for a lot of No American game.

    The bottom pic is a '06 I recently built on a 1955 action.

    I grew up reading everything Jack O'Conner ever wrote....the early model 70 in 270 from his adventures was my boyhood dream rifle

    I read Jacks books that he wrote every year or so,when I am done I take my pre-64 super grade, .270, out of the safe and give it a few pats for Jack.

    Got the .270 FWT, not because I ever read anything that Mr. O'Conner wrote, but because so many respected him, and the .270 FWT was one of his most favotite rifles.
