During the recent conversations on .375's you stated you had seen problems with the Win. M70 from the last 10 years related to QC rather than design.
Please elaborate. I have two of these. One of the first LH actions (action only) produced that I picked from a competative shooter that had it worked over for NRA Highpower (not sure I'll need the stripper clip guide for hunting sheep & goats!) and a latter LH rifle in .338. I've had no trouble with the latter rifle.
Your statement has me wondering...should I pick up certain/trouble prone spare parts while they are available? Any thing else I should have looked at?
