...order number 535109211, is a Shot Show Special. Does that mean it can only be ordered at the Shot Show? Does it mean that it was announced at the Shot Show and can be ordered afterwards? Does it mean that it's a limited run?

I asked my dealer to check on that order number and he said that he couldn't find it. I think what he meant was none of his suppliers had it.

I'd like to buy one but I'm not willing to pay through the nose if it's a limited run.

I checked on it and they had to be ordered by a distributor at the show. I called a shop I deal with and told them I wanted one and they in turn contacted their distributor to get one ordered.

However, one can check on that shot show gun page at a later date and locate where they were shipped. Click on the .257 in the shot show list of guns, which brings up the picture, description and UPC, item number whatever. At the bottom left there is a link to find dealers who carry it. Click that and it shows Gallery of Guns....which does not show them yet. However I'm assuming that there will be a list there at some point in time.

I also talked to Winchester and you can call later and find out once they are shipped where they went as far as dealers are concerned.

Hope that helps.

Oh...forgot. Suggested retail like $879 or somewhere in there without looking again. My shop said about $750, which is the same or cheaper than a older XTR in .257.

Wacenturion, thanks for all of the info. I made a note to follow up on this issue in a month or so. I hope there are a few of them left.

I saw that advertised when the SHOT show was being held. I immediately called the cell phone of the dealer I do all my business with,, as I knew he was at the shot show at the time. He orderred a few of them and my name is at the top of the list,, also getting the first pick of the three he orderred!

I talked to my FFL dealer today and he's going to place an order with Davidson's Gallery of Guns.

Checked with a local dealer. He said he could get me one but the price would be $850. Are they really going for $750ish? Thanks.

When I spoke to Winchester the person there thought the end of February they might be going out as they were in the process of building them as I talked with them.

My bet would be in the next 4-5 weeks, but just a guess.

Wacenturion thanks, hope you are right. I read on another forum that they would not be shipped until August.

Just talked with Winchester again and here's the time frames.

1. Jack O'conner Custom Tribute .270 will be available end of August

2. Jack O'conner Tribute .270 will be available first part of August.

2. Winchester 2012 Shotshow Model 70 Featherweight in .257 Roberts will be available in approximately 180 days

I assume the other Shotshow guns would also be available in the same time frame as the "Bob".

That's the latest.

Not a bad price. Did the pre-64 257 Roberts have the short action, or the long action like the new one?

The pre-64 was only made in a "long" action. Mag box had spacers in front/back/both to allow feeding. A filler block was added to the extractor which acted as a bolt stop and made different lengths to accomodate each caliber other than the standard 30.06 and magnum. A longer ejector compensated for shorter calibers. Wisner's Inc.

Winchester never did make a short action pre-64 Model 70, in any cartridge.
