Needing blue, if possible should have noted that, but if nothing else pops I will loop back.

Got a blued factory take-off barrel from a left hand Classic Sporter "Made in New Haven, CT". Finish is 98 to 99% and interior is in great shape as well but it's also a 30-06.

OK, on the board. I have a 30-06 stainless so preferring the 270, but waiting on a call from the original owner so if it was a 30-06 that may be the way I go.

I will have one very shortly, once I have a 9.3 barrel installed. Finally have all the parts just need a smith to make the switch. It’s a lh blued 270 win with no marks and limited rounds.

What's different about the barrel on a RH or LH rifle? Opposite twist? Lettering stamped on left side vs right?

Well I am sad to say I missed out on my 6 digit m70 rifle so not going to be resurrecting the hybrid scout cantilevered Frankenstein to its original self as I had hoped. Thanks to all
