Williams one piece bottom metal
I just ordered a one piece bottom metal from Williams Firearms for a Pre-64 Win. Mod. 70 Featherweight 30-06. Some how a rumor got started that they were no longer making bottom metal for Pre-64 Winchesters. The guy I talked to is named Ross.
I am in the process of doing a little custom work to this old 30-06. So far the stock has been given a make over with better checkering, ebony for-end and grip cap, Super Grade inlay-ed swivels, Pachmayer Old English recoil pad, glass bedded to allow for a free floating barrel and a nice hand rubbed oil finish. The trigger is set at a crisp 3 lbs.
I will also be getting a Jim Brockman's Pop Up Peep Sight with Talley Quick Detach Rings as the rifle will often be carried with out a scope. I have a Leupold 1.75 x 6 VX III with a Post Duplex reticle from their Custom Shop that will work well for this rifle.
