28" barrel with 1-14" twist rate
Fiber optic sights with that sight cover thingie like on a marlin lever gun
drilled and tapped for a scope
.500 s&w magnum
What do you think and/or what would you get?
let's break this down by sentence.
Winchester M70 platform, well good start.
dark red cherry wood stock, with checkering and black forend cap, not bad.
dual sling swivel on both ends? forend makes sense, but the buttstock?
blued barrel and high luster on stock, nothing wrong with that.
the most effective "civilian legal" recoil reduction system? what's a civilian legal rcoil reduction system? totally confused here.
28" barrel with a 1-14 twist? and how did you arrive at this particular figure?
sight thingie? i suppose a sight hood? fiber optics? and drilled and tapped for a scope. okay, i guess.
500 S & W in a bolt action rifle? well i guess it's possible, but why?
first thing that stands out is your apparent lack of knowledge of firearms. but don't dispair, as you are in the right place to learn and there are many knowledgeable experts and enthusiasts here and you can learn quite a bit.
better idea would be to tell us what is the proposed usage of the rifle. hunting rifle? target rifle? custom one-off just to be different than what everyone else has? this would help us make suggestions thay would be of more benefit and use to you.
