Winchester Model 70 SPR .308

    At the Browning section of IWA, there were a number of “IWA Specials” – weapons that are going to be sold in small numbers to test the reaction of the market. One such weapon was a Winchester Model 70 SPR – in simple terms, a very nice precision rifle. Made by FN in South Carolina, it features a pre-’64 type action and what I believe is a MacMillan stock with an adjustable cheekpiece. The barrel is hammer forged and chrome lined, and was exceptionally thick. It’ll be available in the US very soon.
