    I don't see any signs of the action being bedded. I guess it could be pillar bedded but I haven't taken the gun apart to see. I just sent the original owner "frog stealer" a PM asking him for feedback on this.

    No contest Art. You will have to pop its cherry with something deserving of the honor.

    Stop telling him that Charlie!

    Art - It is much too plain for you and seems to have issues with accuracy. Let me take it off your hands so you can pursue a fancier model. Lol.

    That's a nice rifle. It sure shoots well and that's what matters when it come to the crunch. Congratulations

    Shootist,

    Glad you are getting some great accuracy with this rifle! As for the bedding, all the new production M70 Safari Express Winchesters have some bedding done, I believe at both points where the action screws are. Other than that, I personally haven’t touched the thing as far as bedding goes!

    I told you she’s a shooter! Funny, I had full intention of putting the money from this rifle towards a double, but ended up buying a new Shiloh Sharps in 45-110 with it. I guess at the moment, I’m on a black powder fetish.

    If I didn't have a couple of CZ's in .404 already we would have been bidding against each other. Congratulations!

    Looks like a standard Safari Express stock. Plain is sometimes best! You won't feel as bad banging around in the Bakkie with that!
