Would anyone have documentation including owners manual and any other information on the M80 Jack I Connor tribute? I have picked up a second hand rifle and would love to get some info on it?

Further, how many were produced?

How does the rifle compare to a super grade M70? ... ibute.html

Welcome to the forum!

There is a model 70 manual available for pdf download on the Winchester manuals site, I suppose the standard 70 and O Conner are basically the same. If no, call Winchester, they will send a precise manual. I think.

Thank you. I have tried asking Winchester Australia but have been advised the rifle was not sold in Australia.. =? My inquiry with Winchester USA has not received a reply yet....

Don’t know if you have an EBay account, but I saw one of the JOC model 70 owners manual on there for sale a while back. I think it was around $8-$9.

Hey community. I am reviving this post as I am still in search for relevant information regarding this rifle. Having visited a gun shop only to be told that it is just a standard featherweight has made me more determined to try and get some info on it. It would be great to get any info guys.
