Or maybe because it was a smoking good price?
Bought a Winchester Model 70 SA (short action, claw extractor, Featherweight-style walnut stock) for $300 today. It has seen some rough handling but is mechanically perfect. It's going to end up another caliber. I have a semi heavy Winchester 308 barrel that would probably turn up but I think I want something a little different. That will be in a while. Too many projects on hand. I may shoot it as it is for a bit.....~Muir
