Just got my Winchester model 70 in 300 mag and it's not a muaser action?
It's a slightly modified 98 Mauser action. Like 95 percent of all other bolt actions out there..
if its a classic action is a halfstep ahead of the mauser action
Alright thanks guys it just threw me off for a second I will post pics of it later.
Is it pre '64 or post '64?
Did you get a push feed or the 'classic' control feed M70????
I believe its a push feed But I never heard of a push feed model 70 ?
I believe it is a post 64 I'm not sure yet.
From the picture, it is a post '64. It does not have the large Mauser extractor claw and is a push feed. For all practical purposes, it is a modified Mauser action.
Alright thanks cotton either way I love this gun lol
That is a nice gun. I have a M70 post '64 w/ a push feed bolt in .243 and it is one of my most accurate rifles, consistantly shooting sub MOA groups w/ my handloads. In fact, there is not a bullet weight it does not like.
It is a push feed. I too have had a couple of them and both shot very well. They did reintroduce the control feed for a time in the 90's and I had several of them also. Mine were LH M70's, I wish I had kept them! Hindsight is 20-20!!!
its a push feed. not a really a model 70 its their version of the remington 700. they shoulda called it a model 700. it woulda been more honest.
the real model 70 has a long extractor claw which is missing on yours.
that doesnt make it bad just means its not really a model 70
Ya this one wants to be accurate but I can't get it sighted in. it's shooting to the right so I move the scope to the right and it shoot more to right lol. I guess I forgot how to sight in a rifle.
The new model 70 classic isn't the pre64 but IMHO it's the best current production bolt action rifle made (excluding some of the really high end European rifles that are borderline on custom), and will probably be my next bolt action.... If I don't stumble on a good deal for a pre64 first!!!!
Ya that's what happen to me I found this one for 450 and I always wanted a m70 and I have been looking for a 300 so it was a win win for me
there4 are good reasons why the Model 70 has always been known as "The Rifleman's Rifle."
You have a great gun no matter what year it was made. Hang on to it. My Dad had one and past it down to my brother. Its his favorite and its accurate. Just got to spend some time behind it and you'll get it sighted in.
Lol you must be a bow hunter, if it shoots to the right, move the scope to the left.
Lol nope never bow hunted. But I guess I forgot how to sight in.
