For 75 years the Winchester Model 70 has been the chosen rifle for thousands of sportsman on hunting adventures all around the world.

Chambered in 30-06 Springfield the 75th Anniversary Super Grade Model 70 features a Grade IV/V Full Fancy walnut stock with shadow line cheek piece for a perfect eye alignment with the scope.

The receiver and the steel cap are also elegantly engraved and the decorative steel crossbolt adds a touch of refinement.

The 75th anniversary model comes with all of the features that have given the Model 70 the reputation of being a reliable and accurate rifle. The forged steel receiver adds to the strength of the rifle and the front and rear bedded action eliminates shifts in zero for exceptional long range accuracy. The solid steel one-piece bottom metal gives the rifle more rigidity. The M.O.A. Trigger systems give shooters a precise and crisp trigger with zero take-up, zero creep and zero over travel. Pinpoint accuracy is also obtained with the cold hammer-forged free-floated barrel. The integral recoil lug is forged and machined as part of the receiver for perfect barrel alignment and great accuracy.

Pre-’64 style controlled round feed with claw extractor fully controls the cartridge from magazine, to chamber to ejection. The Model 70 also features a three position safety and a recessed target crown to protect rifling. To help reduce felt recoil, the Model 70 comes with a Pachmayr® Decelerator® Recoil Pad.
