@TOBY458 I got mine about the same time as you...same Alaskan model. I absolutely love it, it feels well balanced and has a very smooth action. I did shoot mine with the sights before scoping as well but mine hit centered on the target but was about 6 inches low from the factory. This was with the Nosler Trophy Grade ammo as that was all I had available at the time until I just got in a shipment of 300gr TSX rounds. The next two days are the last of our deer season here for a special doe only hunt...I’m gonna try and get one with mine just to break it in. I love it so far...very accurate also.

Yes. They are very nice. Surprisingly well handling and quick to get on target. I was afraid the 25" barrel would be cumbersome, but I haven't found that to be the case at all.

Hello TOBY458, congrats on yor new rifle. I recently bought the exact same M70 Alaskan, but i asked a gunsmith to forge the iron sights as i was not confident in the switchable original ones. I shot a 3 bullets group at 20 meters that came out decent i guess, since the range was very dark and i shot standing up.

Imo the Alaskan version is an amazing package for the price. As you mentionned it is surprisingly light.
Anyway i was amazed by the crisp trigger, i am eager to test the rifle with a proper scope.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
