I stopped at my stockmaker's shop a couple of months ago. He had a Wickcliffe rifle that a client wanted to sell. Caliber was .270 Winchester. Barrel was 26" in a pretty heavy contour. Slick working falling block with a great trigger and wood looked like AA to me, with silver medalion inlaid into the grip cap and some etched carving on the receiver. I really couldn't make out the model number (probably a model 76) because the objective of a Vari XIII pretty much hid everthing but the Manufacturer. I talked to the owner, who claimed the rifle was unfired. He wanted $800 and book is about $500 for a 100 percent rifle. I passed because the rifle was just too heavy for a 270 and parts availability is questionable. I think these rifles were manufactured in Ohio about 1978. In the end, the owner decided to keep the rifle.
