I love Winchester Mod. 70 rifles for big game hunting. The ones I have owned have been reliable and they all shoot better then I can. I like the "controlled round feed". Do I need it? Probably not. Thousands of hunters have proven "push feeds" are reliable. Are Mod. 70's more accurate out of the box then other factory rifles. I doubt it. But they do have a few features I love. The safety! When the safety is on it blocks the firing pin and locks down the bolt. The bolt! Put the safety on half way and the bolt easily field strips with out tools. The trigger! What a simple and reliable design. Very few parts, easy to adjust and clean, reliable and as foolproof as any hunting trigger I have seen. So there you have it. Don't deny it. Us rifle hunters are loyal to our rifles and we don't like anyone putting down our much loved "old reliable". What is it about the big game hunting rifle you have that keeps you so loyal to it?
