    I am curious if anyone has seen an early release of the new Model 70s yet? I am wondering how the new trigger and overall quality look.

    Anyone?

    I saw and handled one at the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Convention in Reno. It's a big step up from the old post 64s, but then again, so is the price. It's more in the line of a Kimber or Cooper rifle than the old Model 70s or current Remington 700s. The trigger was nice, I think a lot of manufacturers are making guns with better triggers now. Fit and finish on the "new" model 70 was excellent.

    Any insiders have any idea when they'll hit the stores? I read summer 2008, but don't know whether that's realistic or optimistic .
