Re: Need some information on Winchester model 70 .243
The Model 70 "push feed" rifles produced beginning in 1964 had a trigger from the factory that were readily adjustable for both travel and pull weight, and with some adjusting BY SOMEONE FAMILIAR WITH THEM were comparable IMHO to the best replacement triggers on the market. The trigger issue in particular shouldnt be a huge concern as a result. I will defer to others more familiar with the push feed featherweights in particular with respect to accuracy potential. While I have owned quite a few push feed 70's the only featherweights I owned were VERY ammo finicky. The standard weight ones were not so; but with this limited experience I dont want to color all featherweight push feeds with the same brush. You can tell a featherweight if its in its original stock, by the small schnabel tip carved on the tip of the forend, and of curse the shorter, thinner, more tapered barrel.
