I ordered a Model 70 Extreme Weather Rifle. Have not got this one yet. My plans are to get it set up with an exhibition Tiger Maple Stock and have the Bell and Carlson stock as a backup. It is a really good rifle. All Model 70s I have shot are amazingly accurate. Went to the new Gander Outdoors. The only Winchester Model 70s they had were Featherweights in Walnut stocks. But all three were beautiful rifles. My next one though will again have Stainless barrel and action. Not that the blued rifles are not OK in harsh weather, because properly oiled down and stored after rain and snow they are totally fine, including scope settings, etc. in my experience. I just like a few more in SS.

You are right on with Tiger Maple and Bell and Carlson. Tiger and Burl are my favorite patterns. I don't hunt, so synthetics are not in my inventory.

Happy shooting is a large plus in gun ownership. I don't shoot anymore. Just cuddle and maintain.

I was an avid hunter as a kid and into my teens. Lost interest in my twenties and on to senior.
