I have fiddled with one several years ago. I found it to be needlessly complicated and not user friendly. Parts are getting scarce as they have been out of production for several years and Winchester is no longer making ANY guns.
IMHO you would be better served with a Remington 740, 7400. Currently produced, mags available (including 10 rounders from Eagle) and the company is not Tango Uniform.

Clarification may be needed I think. Winchester did close their doors, but the parent company ( Olin ) did also enter into an agreement with Browning to continue making several models of the old Winchester line. Both companies are in fact owned by FN Herstal.

True Dat, Dilliger. Hopefully they (FNH) will start producing more of the old Winchester product line. I am doubtful they will reintroduce the M-100. It was not a very successful rifle.

100% agreed. They have good backing now, and the Winchester line has a good rep, so I am hoping they will reintroduce some of the old stuff as well.

I saw they recently released the John Wayne 100th Anniversary Edition, which I thought was a nice touch.

FNH is a good company - I am hoping they will do the right thing by some of the old Winchester line.

Side note: You ever been to the Winchester Mystery House? CRAZY!!!

I saw a tv special on it and a close friend was there a couple of years ago. He said it was really weird. And he's a UFO chasing freak!

I have a couple of 100's- .243 and .308 They have a gas system that requires cleaning, accuracy os so-so (light barrel, gas system block and rear sight dovetails cut into barrel, changing harmonics of barrel), and parts are getting REAL scarce. Unless you have a real good price, would look around. Also have a BAR in .243 (Made in Belgium) that is the most accurate autoloader I have ever owned.

I have a Winchester Model 100 in .308. Also have an H&R Model 360 Ultra semi-auto rifle in .308. The H&R shoots much better than my Winchester.

I had a Mod100 carbine in .308. Very accurate with pet loads, but reliability was not 100%. Glad I sold it.

A BAR or the new Rem 750 (or a 7400) should serve you well.

Default Love my M 100

My first hunting rifle was the Model 100 carbine. I treated the gun like a workhorse: Snow, rain, mud and heat exposure were of little concern in the search of a monster buck. It took two decades of abuse until I took pity on the firearm that served me well. Had a Winchester certified gunsmith in Fairfield, CT give it a total overhall.

It looks so good I stopped taking it out in the woods. It's a good looking gun, accurate and light. Perfect for hunting in dense areas.
