Winchester Model 70 Safari Express

From the press release …

If dangerous game is on your wish list, the new Winchester Model 70 Safari Express rifle should be at the top of your purchase list. Big, tough, dangerous game demands a cartridge that can handle the job. Offered in 375 H&H, 416 Rem. Mag. and the time tested 458 Win. Mag., the new Safari Express Model 70 is the finest big game rifle in the world.

The new rifle features the famous Pre-’64 style claw extractor along with double recoil lugs, which dangerous game hunters have relied upon for many years to provide maximum action strength.

The buttstock of the rifle features a classic cheek piece and Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad. The Safari rifle comes with an Express style rear sight and a hooded-blade front sight.

Last, but not least, the new rifle features Winchester’s new M.O.A adjustable trigger. A hinged steel magazine floorplate makes unloading the rifle easy.

Suggested retail price is $1,279.

    ‘the new Safari Express Model 70 is the finest big game rifle in the world.’ – I wonder if Holland and Holland will go out of business thanks to Winchester’s $1200 rifle? Somehow, I think not.

  • Very nice, I’d like mine in .375 H&H please.

    Love to have on in 416 Rem mag. Steve go buy one for me!

    I have one of the “new” Model 70 Safari Express rifles in .375 H&H. It is a well done rifle with quality workmanship and trusted features. I suspect you’re going to see quite a few of these rifles in .375 and .458 in the hands of professionals where large, dangerous animals are found.

    For those of us who dream of Africa or a big Brown Bear, this rifle fits the enterprise with no excuses necessary.

    Get out there and shoot.
