Description

The Winchester® Model 70® is the bolt-action rifle that all others are compared to; and the Safari Express rifle is tailored for hunting serious big game species such as Cape buffalo and Kodiak bear. The controlled-round, claw-extractor (same as the "pre-'64" style) grabs hold of the cartridge's rim shortly after it leaves the magazine and guides it to the chamber, regardless of the angle the rifle is being held, and prevents jams caused by double feeding during adrenaline charged encounters with dangerous game. The large claw extractor also provides maximum surface contact on the cartridge's rim for sure extraction of the spent casing; and a solid blade-type ejector reliably clears empty cases from the action. The Safari Express model features a satin finished, straight comb, walnut stock with cut checkering, and a Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad. The stock features dual recoil lugs and 2 steel stock reinforcing crossbolts to handle the punishment from heavy magnum cartridges. Reliable express-style front and rear open sights get you on target instinctively, or back up optical sights when hunting in remote areas. A 3-position safety allows the shooter to load or unload the Model 70 with the safety engaged in the mid position; and the bolt locks with the safety in the rearward position, where it is extremely unlikely to get knocked off safe when carrying the rifle in rugged terrain. Winchester's M.O.A.™ Trigger System has zero trigger "creep" prior to the release of the firing pin, and no "overtravel" of the trigger after the firing the rifle. The excellent trigger, combined with a hammer-forged barrel, and a bedded, forged steel receiver provides exceptional accuracy. The Winchester Model 70 Safari Express Bolt-Action Rifle is an outstanding choice for hunting in Africa or any rugged environment inhabited by dangerous game. Made in a USA.
