The Model 70 has always been a rifle for the ages and today's new Model 70 is the bolt-action rifle for the future. The Model 70 action offers pre-64 style controlled round feeding and a three position safety and is highlighted by a jeweled bolt body with a knurled bolt handle. Inside is the M.O.A. Trigger System with zero creep and zero overtravel.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Model 70, Winchester has released a limited edition custom model that pays tribute to famed outdoor writer Jack O'Connor. The Jack O'Connor Custom Model 70 is built on a AAA high-grade french walnut stock with an ebony forearm tip, a shadowline cheekpiece, and fleur-de-lis checkering. Chambered for O'Connor's favorite caliber, .270 Winchester, the free-floating, hammer-forged steel barrel is polished blued and features a featherweight contour and a target crown. The Jack O'Connor Custom Tribute Model 70 has a metal buttplate rather than the typical Pachmayr Decelerator pad found on most Model 70s since it's made to collect rather than to fire. The floorplate and pistol grip cap are engraved and Jack O'Connor's signature is engraved in nickel on the trigger guard. A custom owner's manual, a custom brochure, a custom hang tag, and a voucher to purchase an embroidered custom case from the Jack O'Connor Center are all included.
