For sale is a great condition M70 XTR Featherweight (1981-82) in 7x57. This rifle is all original, no bedding or trigger work. Includes Conetrol base/rings (1" low). Excellent bluing with no defects, great wood with no scratches/gouges, a few marks on the trigger guard as shown. I have it shooting 140gr ttsx at 1" with H4350, but have not got around to tightening it up. Definitely has potential, and I'll pass along my load info.

$950 shipped to FFL.

This exact rifle was my first big game rifle. Outstanding.

I bought my daughter this same model in 7mm-08 for Christmas or I would buy this one! Hers has a smaller (featherweight) frame that fits her really well and similar to your experience hers is shooting 120 ttsx faster and more accurate than expected! A pleasantly surprisingly nice looking/performing rifle-hope someone picks yours up, glad I bought one earlier

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
