Winchester Celebrates 75th Anniversary of Model 70

Known as "The Rifleman's Rifle," the Model 70 has turned 75.

8/9/2012

The Winchester Model 70, long known as "The Rifleman's Rifle," has hit its 75th anniversary, and the company has released the new Model 70 75th Anniversary Super Grade to commemorate the event.

Chambered in .30-06 Sprg., the latest addition to the Model 70 line features a Grade IV/V Full Fancy walnut stock with a shadow line cheek piece. To commemorate the 75th anniversary, the solid one-piece metal bottom has full coverage engraving with scroll patterning and 75th Model 70 emblem engraved.

As one might expect, the 75th Anniversary model features all of the perks that created the original Model 70's reputation. A 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 Model 70 75th Anniversary Super Grade ships with an MSRP of $1,999.99.

Looks like a nice rifle, but not worth 2 grand. This is a production grade rifle approaching a custom grad price!
