Default Winchester 77 legality?

A friend called me wanting to know if it is legal his dad gave it to him and told him the usual long story of it being grand-dads rifle, but he said when he loaded rounds in the tube it held 15, it's tube fed so is that legal or does he need to make some kind of plug for it? I did some searching and tried the flow chart but that is mainly for AW stuff.
