In 1959 Gopher Shooting supply requested Winchester to make up some featherweight rifles without sights in the calibers 3006, 270 and 243. After this Winchester decided to offer sightless rifles as a class 4 special order. This is one of those sightless barrels chambered in 264 Win Mag. It is new and unused with a couple barely noticeable slight scratches. Thanks for looking.On Aug-30-12 at 08:51:37 PDT, seller added the following information: The barrel is 26 inches long.
