M70 Winchester stock

Post by yumastepside » 09 Oct 2018, 11:16 am

Anyone got an old stock they want to get rid of?
I'm looking for an old 30-06 length model 70 Winchester stock to modify as a template. It can be broken or whatever, it doesn't matter as I intend to cut and shut it anyway.
Cheap is good, I'll pay any freight of course, but free is better ;)
My Winchester is a mid '70s model.

Cheers

Too easy, mines a '77, the Gabe Gatti stock's too nice, and too expensive, to take out in the scrub!

265 RCBS with stainless barrel

i'm a big fan of mausers (just got rid of a real nice shooting 6.5x55 husky), but the model 70 is the ultimate evolution of that design i reckon. what caliber is yours roger ? :thumbsup:

265 RCBS ? haven't heard of that before roger, damn nice rifle. my 2013 6.5x55 is a supergrade , real nice stock. it got a few dents from the handbrake in my mates ute on a hunt. i tend to hold on to it a bit better now .
