(GunReports.com) — “Dust 2 Dollars” is running an auction for a Remington Model 760 GameMaster pump-action rifle chambered in 270 Winchester — and there’s a twist. Because this rifle is 59 years old, it qualifies for a C&R transfer.
The barrel-date code of “DZZ” indicates the gun was made in September 1953, only one year after the line was introduced. The GameMaster 270 Winchester version was introduced in 1953, so this is one of the first guns chambered in that cartridge.
The Model 760 replaced the Model 141 and was a great seller for Remington. There were more than 1 million Gamemasters made through the years.
This rifle had sling swivels added, and its receiver was drilled and tapped for a Weaver scope mount. She still wears barrel sights for those who want to hunt that way.
The wood is in very fine condition. The forearm is fine, and the buttstock has only two small chips near the receiver. There is a nicely carved deer on the right side of the buttstock.
The external bluing has thinning from carry and use over the years, but the bore on the rifle is just fine. She is a shooter with a lifetime of hunting still to do.
The seller is Oregon-based Dust 2 Dollars, a GunAuction.com member for 10 years and 10 months with 17,500 positive feedbacks from internet auctions.
