That's not an original stock.
It looks typical of replacements common in the 60's

Some of the B models have the letter B stamped or engraved after the model # on the receiver. You can veiw a pic of a B model with a high comb stock at http://www.randgfirearms.com ( I think it's still there)

Thanks GO
Nice to see a few 60's made transition guns. I have only seen 8-9 of them ever. Owned two, a 222 and the 264 that had the ring in the chamber.

Kind of wierd that the 721-722-725 run was only about 13-14 years. Although they didn't really die off. They Evolved into the 700's.

Compare the Winchester M70 and its father the M54, and grandfather Mauser. The 54 started in the 20's and the 70 evolved from it in 1935. Now sadly there is the end of the Winchester 70 line. Maybe it is only "for now".

Model 721

Post by 721/270Win » Fri Jun 23, 2006 6:47 am

Another one for the log: .270 Win, Serial# 4197X, October 1949 (correct?)

The other barrel markings are unlike those shown on the diagrams on this site. The left side looks something like this: III EUU III (three vertical hashes of ascending length on either side of the date stamping). The right side has the REP proof stamping but instead of a triangle there is a diamond, there is an upside-down 29 closest to the breech and a marking that looks like a three-lobed propeller. Also on the right side under the dovetail cut for the rear sight, is a three-leafed clover (like the playing card suit symbol for "clubs"). Are these all typical marking for 1949?

721 Manufacture date

Post by Cliff721 » Wed Sep 13, 2006 7:06 pm

I have a 721 with a custom stock. The dealer I bought it from said the collector he got it from indicated it was done by Pachmayr Gun Works in LA. The stock is a dark figured American Walnut with rosewood forend tip (angled) and rosewood grip cap both with wood spacers and Monte Carlo style cheekpiece very much like a Weatherby styling with flattened forend. 14 inch lop to Pachmayr White Line recoil pad. Jeweled bolt. Checkering at about 24-26 lpi but not wrap around. Trigger guard assembly is stock.
The coding is: B YY [January 1952]
Numbering is 225xxx

If anyone has info about Pachmayr's custom stock work in the early 1950s it would be much appreciated. I located an informative article on Pachmayr's LA store: Al Berhnsohn, "The Lo-Down on Pachmayr Gun Works Inc. How Frank Pachmayr Runs His Business" in The Shooting Industry, April 1964.

REM725, Another transition, 721 .270 s/n 4222XX, AF 3/59. Interesting note; one of my 308's is the same s/n as one listed in Lacy's book on the 700.

Thanks PR. They are edited into the list.

Are these by chance "transition" models. i.e. with Model 700 looking 24" barrels and sights. Not having 26" barrels with raised dovetail for the rear sight.

Again I thank everyone for their entries to our list.

I would love to find 722-257 OUU 7/49 because all those numbers would make it exactly the same age as me.

PS - I am also still seeking a 725 short action in any calibre. Stock can be wasted as I have nice stock already.
