Winchester Model 70 Featherweight Bolt-Action Rifle 6.5 PRC
The Winchester Model 70 Featherweight Bolt-Action Rifle is a little bit thinner, trimmer, and lighter weight than the Sporter model. The “pre-’64” controlled-round, claw-extractor, utilized by the Featherweight, grabs hold of the cartridge’s rim as soon as it exits the magazine and directs it to the chamber no matter how the rifle is held. This prevents jams brought on by multiple feeding. A strong blade-type ejector reliably removes empty cases from the action, and a wide claw, Mauser-style extractor offers maximum surface contact on the cartridge rim for sure extraction of the expended casing.The shooter can load or unload the Model 70 Featherweight while the safety is in the middle position thanks to a 3-position safety.
When carrying the rifle across rough terrain, it is exceedingly improbable that the bolt would accidently be knocked to the firing position because the safety is entirely to the rear. The M.O.A.TM Trigger System from Winchester has no “overtravel” or “trigger creep” once the firing pin has been removed. Excellent accuracy is provided by the trigger, a hammer-forged, free-floating barrel, and a forged steel receiver with a bedded integrated recoil lug.
The walnut stock has a satin finish, a Schnabel foreend, and a Pachmayr recoil pad in addition to cut checkering. For devoted hunters seeking a quick-handling rifle that delivers great accuracy with contemporary, long-range ammunition, the Winchester Model 70 Featherweight Bolt-Action Rifle is a superb option.
