Well, the gentleman took my offer and I went down and picked up another rifle today…
Prairie dogs, wood chucks and other varmints beware 🙂
I’m now the proud owner of one VERY slightly used Winchester Model 70 Coyote Light in 22-250. It has literally had 20 rounds total through it, and really isn’t even broken in. He even threw in the rest of a case of BH Gold 50gr V-max too 🙂
It’s got a composite stock, 24 inch fluted medium heavy barrel, and a Loopy 4.5×14 scope on it. Definitely NOT your father’s Winchester, this one has a CNC milled pre-64 action and new trigger and I will tell you it feels like it’s had a thousand rounds through it! It is smooth as butter, the trigger is as good as the ones on my sniper rifles and this is a brand new gun! Winchester (and FN in South Carolina who builds the guns) got this one right!
But I do have a question…
Why oh why would someone order a varmint gun like this and get a DUPLEX RETICLE???
So the scope is off, shipping it back to Loopy for a varmint reticle install and they are going to throw in a CDS knob for the BH ammo!
Range report to follow when I get it re-assembled… AD, now I won’t have to borrow your .22 next time, and I might even let you shoot this one… 🙂
