Gun Report

Winchester Model 70 Classic Stainless .338 Win. Mag.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

About as plain as a post, the Winchester Classic Stainless was a highly functional hunting rifle. Like the Ruger, it needed a recoil pad and trigger work, desperately in this case. The trigger is adjustable, which should make that an easy job. Handling was great with a scope attached, though some huntersmust have iron sights on their hunting rifles. Others think iron sights destroy the clean look of the pure scoped rifle as a hunting tool. Your choice.

The Model 70 has a controlled-feed extractor and cone-shaped breech hiding in there.
The not unattractive checkering worked. The checkered bolt knob worked very well, as did the big safety lever. But there’s too much space around the bolt handle.
