    Red face winchester manufacturer?

    This may be a highly uneducated question but I was looking at the Winchester Extreme Weather rifles at the gunshop today and noticed that they are made in Utah by Saco ind. I was under the impression that FN was the manufacturer for the new model 70. Can anybody help enlighten me on this. Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is truly a stupid question.

    My understanding is they are manufactured in South Carolina and the company HQ is in Morgan Utah.

    I own 2 of the new ones and really like them. Great rifles for the my IMHO

    Thanks Steve,
    I had thought that they were manufactured in the South Carolina plant also. I may be just have an aging moment but I could swear that the super grades I looked at at GNG were stamped with the FN manufacture information but the Extreme weather had just the Baco ind. stamp (originally thought it was Saco but my eyes are getting old as well. besides the point I agree that they are a good feeling gun. I did pick one up in 338. Thanks again.
