Winchester's Model 70 was called the "Rifleman's Rifle" by many in the know, including shooting editor of Outdoor Life, Jim Carmichael. Known for its accuracy, rugged durability, and overall good looks, the Pre-64 Winchester Model 70 has continued to be in high demand and has grown in value yearly. The number of styles, configurations, calibers, and slight design changes make the Model 70 a collector/shooter's dream. Most of the Model 70 rifles produced were Standard rifles of various calibers. The Super Grade was for shooters who wanted a deluxe rifle and came with an ebony fore-end tip, the Super Grade marking on the magazine floor plate, special stock configurations, etc. This African Super Grade Model 70, produced only in .458 Winchester Magnum caliber from 1956 through 1963, was a special style all its own and total production was limited to only 1,226 rifles. The .458 belted magnum is a true African dangerous game caliber. The rifle weighs 9 lbs.
