3 issues with the Win 100 (have 2 of them- .308 and .243)
1. There is a dovetail cut in the top of barrel for rear sight, and another in the bottom of barrel for gas block. Coupled with a light sporter barrel, this will NOT be the most accurate .308 you have ever had. Dovetail cuts give weird harmonics to barrel.
2. Safety recall, firing pin- tip could break, wedge, cause slamfire. If not yet changed, WIN will pay to have it done. Remove mag, draw back bolt, look thru mag well at underside of receiver- if changed, a letter gets stamped up there in the "roof". You can also check SN with WIN to verify recall has been done.
3. The gas system REQUIRES cleaning after shooting. Get it too crudded up, leave it, you will not be able to draw bolt back. And you must draw bolt back to strip rifle action out of the stock.
Spare parts are getting scarce for them. Lighter than my BAR, not as accurate, but decent little sporter. Stock design= KICK.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
