I found a New Haven CT Model 70 Classic Stainless 30-06 on line, but something strikes me as odd. The barrel is clearly stamped -Classic Stainless- but it has a black checkered composite schnabel end stock. These two details don't seem to jive. Were featherweight barrels stamped as such? My current Classic 70 Sporter is stamped -Classic Stainless-.

Thanks

G`day from Australia.
Sounds like you`re looking at the same rifle that I have here.
The only difference being,that mine is .270Win.
A nice light rifle for walking / stalking.
Cheers.
