I bought a pre 64 Model 70 Featherweight in the early 60s, brand new. It stays, until my cold dead hands are pried from it. With an old Weaver K3, post crosshair, it will shoot MOA with it's free floated barrel in 30-06 caliber. No clue where it ended up at, but a Model 70, pre 64, medium/heavy barrel in the 30-06 caliber, was issued in Nam. Also very accurate with 30-06 Match or 162 grain AP rounds. Scopes back then might fail, but the Winchester, NEVER!
