Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 left-hand .358 STA (Shooting Times Alaskan). This caliber was never offered in production and this is almost certainly the only left-hand .358 STA ever produced by Winchester. Serial number G277220 was hand-built on a controlled-round-feeding action by the USRAC Senior Design Engineer responsible for the Model 70 program in the 1990s. Himself a lefty, he created this rifle for his own use, yet never took it afield. The 24-inch barrel was actually recontoured to sporter dimensions from a bull tube. After the stock blank (AAA-grade claro walnut) was hand-selected and finished out, it was sent to Pat Taylor for her spectacular checkering. A final unique feature is the matte blue finish on the bolt body. CONDITION: Unfired since proof, it remains in new condition other than faint traces of handling. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.2 pounds and length-of-pull is 14.25 inches. PROVENANCE: The purchaser will receive personalized documentation from the builder detailing origin and history. INCLUSIONS: Loading dies and a factory box/sleeve without end label.
