    Winchester M-70 Super Grade

    Do you ever see the Model 70 Supergrade rifles in the UK?

    Most are big rifles, with 24-inch barrels, in .270, .30-06, 7mm RM, .300 WM, and .338 WM.

    But I have seen a few in .308 and 22 inch barrel of a heavier contour than the Featherweight.

    Yesterday, I saw a beautiful 7x57mm with 22 inch barrel.

    Nope not often. I am not sure they are even importing the new model 70's in anyhting but the normal style. Most that I have noticed for sale have been with dratted plastic stocks. read the forums here and you'll soon realise that a 24" barrel would be a No-No for most .

    Over the years I have seen a few of the older Model 70 Super Grades but not many.

    Here is a photo of the stock on this 7x57, which is fairly typical of a M70 Supergrade. The metal is all in a deep, dark black bluing. I don't see many in the stores, as the retail price has increased from $1,000 to $1.900 in the last 15 years. This one is marked down to $1399.00. It is very smooth, as well-fitted together as any factory rifle.

    Very little option if you want to buy a new Mod 70 in the UK. Very limited calibre choice and predominantly standard sporter models. I was after one in 25.06 but was told they were not importing any in that calibre. Luckily I found someone with a nice used long action and I am having a semi custom built (with a 24" barrel)....

    Win Mod 70

    (this new rifle will compliment my 243 and 308, both Mod 70's)

    i bought my son a .308 Featherweight for his graduation from college. Very nice rifle, and shoots well. He likes wood, and this will be something he will keep forever.
