Product Description
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.

    Comments about Winchester Model 70 Jack O'Connor Custom Tribute Centerfire Rifle:

    The 270's range and accuracy is almost legendary among hunters, and the Mauser-type action of this special Model 70 makes it dependable as sunrise. What this rifle lacks in knock-down power against larger Big Game, it more than makes up for in beauty and history. For sheep, deer and antelope out to 350 yards, I'd put this rifle against anything out there. Add the mystique that comes with a 'tribute' rifle to one of America's greatest hunters - Jack O'Connor - and you have a genuine piece of history in your hands. Winchester's craftsman have done a masterful job of creating a gun you'd be proud to pass down to your son, grandson, and beyond... a genuine family heirloom in a world full of throw-away memories. This rifle is a thing of beauty that was meant to hunt. It's a keeper!
