    Default Link to an Article on the new M70.

    I shouldn't do this because I don't want the demand to get so high that I can't get a pair of Supergrades!

    I hope they don't say "FNM COLUMBIA, SC" on the side of the receiver like the pic in the story. They need to say "WINCHESTER" there.

    Default Sounds like...

    Both the Browning X and the 'model 70' got new triggers. Must be a wonderful thing if they say so. The BOSS took the world by storm, too, didn't it?

    The main reason I bought m70's were for there bulletproof, weatherproof trigger. I been wrong before but this planned design change for the trigger is a serious mistake on Win's part.

    I tend to agree. At least the components are stainless.

    I'm hoping the attachment points haven't changed so maybe the old triggers or an aftermarket similar to the originals can be retrofitted.

    Default triggers

    I have heard that the triggers are not interchangable. I will still be in the market for a featherweight and a supergrade when I actualy come across one with decent wood. Sure wish they would chamber the supergrade in 338 win mag.

    Me too!

    They had the .338 WM listed as one of two calibers the Super Grade would be offered in (the other was, of course, the 30-06) on the website. That has changed to .300 WM as it states in the 2008 catalog I picked up today.

    I'm sure the larger calibers and Safari type rifles will show up eventually. I want a SS .375 H&H so I don't have to wreck my M70 Super Express in .375 (wood/blued).
