The Featherweight Compact carries on the Model 70 Featherweight heritage in a deluxe, refined model that is an excellent choice for smaller-framed shooters, ladies, young people, or hunters who prefer a compact, light mountain rifle. This Model 70, with its 20" barrel and fast, flat-shooting calibers starts young shooters off right with a rifle possessing all the deluxe features of the Featherweight. Its comfortable, smaller platform instills confidence in shooters because it fits them better than a full-sized rifle. The Compact Model 70 action has pre-'64 controlled round feeding, the easy-to-use three-position safety and a jeweled bolt body with a knurled bolt handle. The M.O.A. Trigger System is easily adjustable and has no take-up, creep or overtravel.
