Winchester Model 70 Featherweight

Description

The Winchester Model 70 Featherweight is a bolt-action rifle chambered in 11 cartridges, including three Winchester Short Magnum calibers. Winchester introduced the M70 in 1936 and it has been modified and updated throughout the years. It now has nine variations with the Featherweight being Winchester’s most prolific and ubiquitous model.

The Featherweight features a Grade I walnut stock with a satin finish and cut checkering on the grip and fore-end. It uses the popular Pachmayr Deceleration recoil pad. Its three-position safety system allows shooter to cycle unfired cartridges with the safety on. It also features Winchester’s MOA trigger system. The engineering of the MOA system is meant to minimize excessive movement in the trigger mechanism during firing, resulting in a decrease in shooter error.

Winchester recommends the Featherweight for general game hunting.
