Model 70 Sporter

The Winchester Model 70 Sporter is a bolt-action rifle chambered in nine cartridges. Winchester introduced the M70 in 1936 and it has been modified and updated throughout the years. And the Sporter would be considered the standard model.

The Sporter features a Grade I walnut stock with a sculpted cheek rest and the popular Pachmayr Deceleration recoil pad, meant to minimize recoil from heavy loads. The barrel was cold hammer forged, so a machine carefully carved
the grooves in the bore. This process produces accurate and durable
rifling. The barrel is free floating, a feature that prevents barrel-to-stock contact when firing–a design element that increases accuracy. Its three-position safety system allows shooters to cycle unfired cartridges with the safety engaged. It has Winchester’s popular 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. This system also allows the owner to individually tune the trigger by tightening or loosening a set of screws.

Winchester recommends the Sporter for hunting large game.
