Cool!

Of all the gun shows I've been to and all the shops I've visited, I've only laid eyes on one that I was aware of. Thinking flat bolts were more common.
Does it have a s/n prefix?

The flatbolt Long actions were first. Then Ruger started making hollow bolt long actions. Winchester didn't like them doing that so Ruger went to the Round bolt.
Hollowbolts are 70- prefix only. From my experience, it looks like the hollowbolt variation may be slightly rarer than the flatbolt long action. Neither are easy to come by!!
