    Impressive to say the least. I have always been fond of the Model 70. Awesome trigger and actions.

    Mr. Bart’s mention of wood stocks made by P.J. Wright reminded me of a couple of target style stocks P.J. made for me many moons ago. I still have them both: one being one of the prototype target models offered by FFV. It’s a fine rifle but they never caught on with the target crowd. The other is a M-70 shown in attached photos. Not only did P.J. make superb target stocks but he also had an artist’s eye for graceful lines and proportion, an element often missing, or ignored, in ordinary target stocks. Plus superb craftsmanship in checkering and other fine details, as you will note in these photos. Made back ‘70’s it’s one of the best, most accurate, OTC rifles I’ve ever owned, with a barrel by Paul Marquart, who also did chambering and fitting..

    P. J. Wright designed and made some of Roy Weatherby's stocks.

    I admit I'm not up on current stocks, but from what I've seen in the past I'd say the Winchester would be the best bet. However, I also have a Tikka T3 Scout and I love it...but it's not wood.
