The Model 70 Safari Express in a matte blued finish is the perfect choice for your once-in-a-lifetime hunt because it's built to handle the heavy cartridges necessary to take dangerous game. Important details like the Pre-'64 type claw extractor, Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad, M.O.A Trigger System, barrel band front swivel base, hooded-blade front sight and express-style rear sight make the Safari Express ideal for any African hunt. The dual recoil lugs and two steel stock reinforcing crossbolts handle the punishment from heavy magnum loads. The secure hex socket action screws won't snag on clothing and the one-piece steel trigger guard helps maintain rigidity and provides added strength. For easy reloading, the Safari Express comes with a flush mounted hinged steel magazine floorplate.

Beautiful rifle! Absolutely love the styling and fit. Shoots well, paired with a Leupold VX-3 1.75 - 6x scope.
* Be aware that this rifle's hole spacing for scope mount bases is NOT the same as other Model 70 rifles. Thankfully I have a great gunsmith who was able to find bases that worked. I also had to change to a different scope (the Leupold I mentioned), because the spacing between the rings made the scope I had selected impossible to use, without using extension bases, which would extend over the receiver.
I agree with other reviewers that the stock makes using the iron sights very difficult. It does really well with a scope, and medium height rings.
The only complaint I have about my particular rifle, is that the safety needed work by a qualified gunsmith to even be usable. :( I have owned other Model 70's with somewhat stiff safeties, but this thing was ridiculous! It was so stiff that it could hardly be operated, before being disassembled and polished/honed by a gunsmith, especially moving it from the "fire" to the middle "safe" position. (About a $35 job.) Very disappointing on such an expensive gun. Thus, I am only giving it 4 stars

This rifle has a very thick cheek piece which makes it difficult to shoulder and sight, contrary to what the Winchester ads/catalog say. The iron sights are rather poor. My rifle came with a couple of scratches on the outside metal and some scratches in the bolt slot of the receiver, as well as on the bolt itself. The front sling swivel base is a little off center. The action was rather rough but is better after I cleaned, lubed, and worked the bolt a number of times. I haven't shot the rifle yet so can't comment on the accuracy. It is a good looking rifle.
Hinterland Outfitters handled the transaction without a blip.
