Winchester made these Model 54s with the NRA Townsend Whelen- styled checkered stock. This one is chambered in 270 WCF
and has the original 20 inch barrel-made in 1935 and has later features common to the Model 70. It came out of Montana 20 years ago and was set up for hunting, including
D&T receiver and bolt modification & safety to augment mounting a scope. Very well balanced. The Bichrest Winchester Model 54 book features this
rare NRA Short Rifle among its rare sub-models. It has used a Lyman Alaskan period scope. Shows some stock finish wear and 85% bluing remains. Excellent bore-accurate.
Thinking of trading it or selling it toward an early Model 70. pre-1963 version. It is available. PM for price and history. RM

Roger Rule in his Winchester Model 70 book lists the M 54 as the Predecessor, and features the NRA Short Rifle as a M 54 sub-variant.
Beginning about 1934, the receiver port as featured on the Model 70 was
also included on the later M 54s as on this 270 rifle.
The 270 WCF chambering is a bit faster than the average cartridge velocity for the 7mm Mauser
in the 20 inch barrel length. Very handy in mountain hunting for deer and sheep.
