The most respected bolt-action rifle in the world, the Model 70 has earned the nickname, "The Rifleman's Rifle." It features a high-quality action of considerable strength, with 2 forward locking lugs and a Mauser-type non-rotating claw extractor. Unlike other rifles of the period, the Model 70 has a slot in the bolt face below the locking lug, leaving both forward locking lugs solid and stronger. This rifle was custom manufactured by the U.S. Repeating Arms Company of New Haven, Connecticut. Its 24" match-grade, cut rifled, stainless steel, tapered round barrel provides incredible accuracy and durability. Its stock is a hand-rubbed oil-finished Fancy American walnut with a classic configuration that includes a one inch black decelerator recoil pad. The rifle's grip has been hand-checkered with a Style F pattern. Among other unique features, the rifle includes a left-handed action, a hand-honed receiver, squared lugs on the bolt body, a polished bolt face, one-piece stainless steel bottom metal, and front and rear inletted detachable swing swivels. The rifle's wood, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
