Here is a late entry into the SN game and its well past the 3010000 that model 70 has mentioned. This was a 325 WSM but I could not get it to shoot it was one the worse copper foulers I have ever had. I had it rebored by JES into a 338 WSM and it is now a tack driver.


Cool rifle John...

If it was PF, you missed a digit.


Nope - triple checked. A G prefix and a 5 digit PF. The mystery isn't solved yet I guess.

This is an awesome thread for me to stumble upon. I bought a used LH Model 70 300 WSM S/N G3001xxx and could not for the life of me figure out why the gun had this "bastardized" CRF bolt. I went down a rabbit hole looking for answers, but I've seemed to finally find some! If I'm reading correctly, my m70 was one of the last NH production runs?

Huh? You have a CRF Model 70. Period.

Oh, well I guess my lack of knowledge on the subject shows 😜. Thanks for clearing up my confusion.

Not entirely true. They made the “control round push feed” in 300 wsm. That may be what you had. Lower bolt in this illustration linked below.

This works better -- A LOT BETTER -- if you'd PAY ATTENTION before responding with something nonsensical. He had a LEFT-HANDED MODEL 70. ALL LEFT-HANDED MODEL 70s ARE CRF. END OF STORY.

Welcome to the fire!

Your rifle was in fact made at the very end. Early 2006.

I don't know if they made the CRPF in lefty's or not, but you can simply look at the photos in the link AK provided and you'll know exactly which you have.

They -- Winchester -- did not. The left-handed Model 70 was introduced in 1997, produced off and on through 2006, discontinued, and were ALL CRF.

Thank you for the info! After looking at the diagrams, my m70's bolt is definitely a CRF! Glad to get so much info on the gun. LH's are few and far between here (NB, Canada), so I snatched the first one I saw and figured I'd learn about it later. I appreciate the help! laugh

You are correct. I failed to notice that he said LH. Thank you for politely pointing it out. I’ll try to pay attention next time. Please forgive me, sensei.
