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. A premium Pachmayr Decelerator pad helps soak up felt recoil.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Model 70, Winchester has released a limited edition model that pays tribute to famed outdoor writer Jack O'Connor. The Jack O'Connor Model 70 is built on a AA 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 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.
