Our Assessment: The Winchester Model 70 is an iconic American sporting rifle that has been a staple of hunters for more than 80 years; reliable, robust, and accurate, it is one of the benchmarks by which all bolt action rifles are measured. It has more than earned its nickname of “the rifleman’s rifle” and is one of the most iconic rifles around. This example is the Safari Express model with a 24” barrel, express sights, and a handsome checkered walnut stock. Efforts were made to set things back to rights when it came to the Model 70 and this model has the feature of the lauded control-feed bolt. This example was manufactured in 2005 and includes its original factory box. Chambered as it is in the robust .375 H&H Mag, you are prepared for almost all but the biggest game around. By appearances, this rifle appears to have spent more time in the box than out, as there are only a few light handling marks. The rifle rates in Superb condition and looks great, this will make for a powerful addition to a Winchester or hunting rifle collection. Please see our photos and good luck in your bidding!
